You've captured the violence

Posted on Mon, 21 Feb 2022

You've captured the violence of a storm, the cleansing effect and resulting sense of something changed, a new beginning, a metaphor for so much. I love 'winds whipping spume' and the solitary egret - creepy how they take off and silently fly.

That brought back memories, my mum had that book, I remember looking through it, and I've got the Oxfam Vegetarian Cookbook. I enjoyed reading this. Rhea getting so much comfort from Ebay trawling and flicking through recipe books, maybe filling...

Posted on Sun, 06 Feb 2022

This is beautiful Di_Hard. The drama of these stormy February days together with quieter aspects of nature hiding in the woods, 'jade lichen, acid bright moss'. Somehow you've captured the time of year perfectly. Wonderful poem, loved reading it...

Brilliant rhythm. Poor girl,

Posted on Fri, 04 Feb 2022

Brilliant rhythm. Poor girl, why are some people's lives so wretched? 'A twenty two year old has been' is stirring. I enjoyed the short poignant lines and the rhyming. It's like a series of strikes and mirrors that poor young lady's childhood.

Posted on Sun, 30 Jan 2022

What a story and in it what lovely names and words. 'Legends expressed - myths reaching across time'. There is a beauty in the underworld, just as there is horror in nature. I love it when plants are linked to stories (& poems!). Some of...

Posted on Tue, 25 Jan 2022

What a rich landscape to explore. I got the sense of cold and damp combined with so much winter life and texture. The Black mountains above and the fallen tree 'bark - deep gingery-brown'. Your detailed descriptions create such a realistic image ...

Posted on Sun, 16 Jan 2022

I really enjoyed this little bit of escapism and Mr Lee's journey back through the years accompanied by the hustle and bustle of life around the cafe. I love it when older people make the effort to dress smartly each day. And now I want to read...

Hi Insert, thanks for the cherries and your comment. I was really excited about this week's IP but when I went back through my phone, this was the third photo back and I so disappointed because I thought, what on earth is that? I didn't know so I...

Posted on Tue, 18 Jan 2022

A wonderful tribute to a wonderful place Jenni. I enjoyed shivering limbs and the idea of ghosts (I'm sure there are many) a haven for wildlife. You've captured the spirit of the broadleaved forest in winter and the generosity of our ancient...
