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.

A subtle and refined poem rich with elegant phraseology recalling and yearning for the realisation of an old promise (perhaps forgotten) "in renewed anticipation, suspended in the aspic of recollection."

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.
