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.

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.

Hi Kevin, I understand perfectly what you say about the interpretation of a piece when the writer and performer are not the same person. I had poems of mine read by a friend and they sounded marvellous but with my rendition they came across as...

An assured and polished rendition of uplifting thoughts, JoAnne. Well deserving of all the accolades.
I liked particularly the conversational tone.
I gathered that you are American, not so much from your accent but from your reference...

I wouldn't say that I am completely reformed, onemorething. Although I have reluctantly agreed to the 'validity' of Autumn as an acceptable season, I hanker for the warmth of Summer perhaps because I come from a Mediterranean country.

It was all in good fun, Di. No one took the contest seriously and everybody had a good time.
In retrospect the introduction of an 'interloper' in our team - even though irregular - might have been to our advantage as his presence may have...

It was a noble gesture on your part, Rhiannon, and you taught a valuable lesson to those girls. Good on you.
