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 Thu, 20 Feb 2020

Rachel, this must be the apotheosis of your poetry; it can't be surpassed, surely. But, having followed your work closely, I'm certain you are going to prove me wrong. Not only is your use of the language exquisite, your knowledge of Greek...

A very descriptive poem of a fierce storm that has caught many unprepared and powerless to do anything except watching the pelting rain on the window panes, with its suggestion of further upheaval, and observe the extensive damage it caused....

I love your little stories

Posted on Sun, 09 Feb 2020

I love your little stories mentioning Mrs Treaclechops and the invasions of your house by grandchildren, seemingly innumerable.
Your household must be a hive of activities, Mick. Don't let the little kiddies tire you out.

Cheers, ...

Posted on Sat, 08 Feb 2020

It is more a social comment based on current affairs than a celebration of Valentine's day, which is perhaps not what readers might expect.
Sometimes I am inspired by headlines to produce a piece, like this one, that could generate a...

Hi, I now know your name but can't get out of the habit of addressing you as o.m.t.
I too shall desist from making any puns (even my daughters groan at my feeble attempts) and I am on safer grounds by congratulating you on producing such...
