I have been a member of ABCtales since 2003.
I have  published five collections of poems: ‘Idle Thoughts’; ‘Reflections’; 'Cherry Ripe''; 'Poetry on Tap' and 'Cherry on Top' plus 'Guns and Dolls' – a short book containing three short stories – and three novelettes 'Jessica World', 'An Enquiring Mind' and 'A Life's Journey'
Digital versions of these can be found at Smashwords. and other distributors like Kobo and Barnes and Noble.

I was a member of Writers Group and indie publishers I*D Books based in Shotton, Flintshire until they ceased activity.
My work has been featured in various magazines and anthologies.

A regular contributor to ABCtales.com I also contributed to the websites Poetry24 and UKAuthors.co.uk. I was ‘Writer of the Month’ on the latter in December 2005.

I feel your pain my man

Posted on Sun, 27 Aug 2023

I feel your pain my man
because the buns won't scan;
for me it's even worse:
I cannot scan my verse.

I much enjoyed your heartfelt jeremiad, Turlough.

Cheers, Luigi

Nicely assembled thoughts, Rhiannon. Keen gardeners would certainly welcome with renewed enthusiasm the sight of flora regeneration after the dreadful weather we've had of late.

You have made the writing of nature and the elements - and related symbolism - your speciality, Rachel, and you do it superbly. This poem is no exception.
I have only a small query; shouldn't this line " the way the sea is always taking...

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