I enjoyed the intertwining of

Posted on Mon, 20 May 2019

I enjoyed the intertwining of the natural and the supernatural here Jenny and you've included so many elements from stars in the sky to the underwater plant life. The result is dreamy and full of magic.

Really enjoyed this stand

Posted on Wed, 15 May 2019

Really enjoyed this stand-alone quirkdom. The uses of a potato know no bounds, it's no wonder the swan wanted to pass itself off as one.

Syllogism, I learned

Posted on Mon, 13 May 2019

Syllogism, I learned something new reading this. It's crazy and clever, anything involving ostriches is inherently funny.

As others have said the first

Posted on Mon, 13 May 2019

As others have said the first verse is a perfect accolade to these woodland beauties and then you use them as an example of what could be lost. The rich won't share, there is evidence of that all around us and so much of our natural resources is...

Thanks Insert. I'm pretty

Posted on Sat, 11 May 2019

Thanks Insert. I'm pretty horrified by the dehumanising of people in the workforce. I know it happened in the Victorian era but I believe there was a bit in the middle where things improved and now we are returning to those dark days. The sort of...

Lots of texture and emotion

Posted on Tue, 30 Apr 2019

Lots of texture and emotion in this, the metaphor of a large rock, imperfect but unbreakable as this person in your life, it sounds like somebody we could all use. 'Holding my child with feet deep in your sand' is wonderful and you cannot help...

It's incredible what these

Posted on Thu, 18 Apr 2019

It's incredible what these men and boys did each day, the risks and conditions, it must have been the comradarie that gone them through it and faith and trust as you say. The elderly man as an engineer had a huge responsibility but saw himself as...

Interesting piece. The tree,

Posted on Tue, 23 Apr 2019

Interesting piece. The tree, once an ordinary sapling, with so many stories to tell and still causing intrigue inside an old church. It's hard to believe punishing nagging wives and mean merchants in this manner was considered normal...well not...

Excellent poem, really made

Posted on Tue, 16 Apr 2019

Excellent poem, really made me think. There is something sad about the idea of us just passing through but that is what we are all doing isn't it. All those plastic Little Tyke wendy houses people buy for their kids are destined to outlive us all...

This is a story which runs

Posted on Thu, 04 Apr 2019

This is a story which runs along two time trails, the elderly woman searching through turbulent memory banks spanning decades. It reminds me of when my grandmother was lying in bed in her nineties, refusing food because she wanted to die, she was...
