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.

I have ceased to be surprised

Posted on Sun, 26 Apr 2020

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.

A dysfunctional family and calamitous consequences. A blunt and revealing message of an awful situation.

I have the solution that works for me, Rachel. I have locked that drawer and thrown away the key.
Peace man. As we used to say in my younger days.

Posted on Tue, 26 May 2020

It is difficult to offer criticism especially when one reads high class poetry like yours. Generally everybody seems to be polite to everybody else and either they write nice comments or ignore a piece altogether.
Like you, Rachel, I would...

Posted on Sat, 23 May 2020

When depressed or under the weather it is easy to emphasise the negative side of life. We feel that there is no way out. Yet it's no use bottling things up, better to let it out, as you have done. I am very laid back and take everything in my...

A subtle and refined poem

Posted on Thu, 21 May 2020

Hello Trevor. I quite enjoyed this computer/software verbiage and as an often baffled user of Microsoft I cam appreciate the humour. I also understand that you mean the piece to be a metaphor for the actions of an incompetent politician - a sort...

Hi Rachel, catching up with reading after vainly trying to come up with something worthwhile to post and failing. Even Jessica seems to have lost her appeal.
Interesting how people's interpretations of your poetry differ. I have stopped...
