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.

Posted on Tue, 12 Nov 2019

I can sympathise with your painful memory, Claudine, as I had a similar experience when a small tot. (Pun intended). After a party, the grown-ups had gone out the room leaving a few bottles of liqueurs behind. I and another child decided to drain...

Many superstitions and fears

Posted on Sun, 03 Nov 2019

Many superstitions and fears are associated with graveyards. References to black magic and zombies were rife in popular literature and burial grounds acquired a mysterious aura. 
I remember when youngsters dared each other to cross a...

Posted on Thu, 31 Oct 2019

Geese and all birds are fascinating creatures, Claudine. The graceful ballet they offer during migration is spectacular. I never tire of watching their aerial displays.

Posted on Sat, 26 Oct 2019

I detect in this poem the sadness of an unhappy relationship which promised much but whose fragility is represented by the ephemeral life of the wild flowers in the bride's bouquet.
These anemones will wither and die like the marriage...

Hello onemorething.
As always an articulate and skilfully crafted poem that doesn't disappoint.
I too was reminded of Columbus, that troubled navigator, by the title of the poem and Jenny's comment and remembered having written a...

Hi JoAnne.

Fantastic read, full of originality and humour. I enjoyed it tremendously as I could visualise the board meeting and the self-importance of the directors talking utter drivel.
I wish I had come up with this idea. Bravo.

Best, Luigi...

Good morning Di. 
I am not a bricklayer but in my younger days I was naive enough to believe that I could build a Spanish wall with three layers of breeze blocks on top of ordinary bricks and I actually did it. At this point you may suspect...
