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.

Good use of the language, Jane. I like 'orbicular shapes' and the crafty suggestion that Barry Gorringe might rhyme with orange as no other rhymes come readily to mind. I seem to have read that 'door hinge' would be suitable.
I too was...

Eight-lines stanzas. I am impressed, Jane. I thought the poem very amusing, what with the lippety lippety rabbits and the strange fellow with the brillo fuzz, not forgetting the main protagonists, the whippets. Brilliant.
Best, Luigi...Read full comment

You have stuck to the technical brief exceptionally well, Jane. The fact that you were able to cope with the unfortunate situation by composing a little poetic gem is admirable - although small consolation for losing your job.

Posted on Mon, 11 Feb 2019
Oddly enough, Di, this poem brings to mind the principles of the economic law of diminishing returns: you can invest more and more resources but eventually a saturation point will be reached. It is a meataphor for life itself as your piece...Read full comment
