I have published four poetry collections entitled 'Idle Thoughts', 'Reflections', 'Poetry On Tap' and 'Cherry on Top'.  See http://gigipagano.wixsite.com/mysite for my latest poetry collection “Cherry on Top” and other publications.
My verses can be described as eclectic, that is to say they go from the sublime to the ridiculous but, I hope, always entertaining.

Very imaginative and original, Mark, loved it a lot.
Was Gavrilo Princip also in the queue waiting to buy that anarchist pamphlet "The Parish News"? 

Pick of the Day for me.

Cheers, Luigi.

I tried that dear Nicky but somehow, after a wash, some seemed to acquire a different shade of black.

I have ceased to be surprised by the quality of your poetry, Rachel, which never disappoints. What fascinates me is the regularity of your input. I'd like to know if you write them spontaneously, on the spot  so to speak, or whether you ponder on...

As Jenny said, you are definitely on a roll. Your description of the fascination that those walks around the Pembrokeshire coast engender clearly reveals your love of nature.
Congratulations on the cherries.

You are proving to be a complete writer, Jenny, both with fine poetry and now with prose. I shall come back to re-read this and will try to keep up with the next parts.

Bye for now and well done on the gold cherries.

Brava...
