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.

The idea of melding the son's

Posted on Mon, 14 Dec 2015

The idea of melding the son's indifferent detachment with the festive season is inspirational, Tina. Written in your inimitable style it was a pleasure to read.
I think I'll join you with a glass of Port to celebrate the advent of a new...

Very ingenious, Rhiannon. It must be an advantage knowing how to use graphics and you have come up with a colourful and interesting piece. Well done.

The story of faraway persons

Posted on Mon, 05 Oct 2015

The story of faraway persons working - perhaps slaving - in an Indian cloth factory, told in a chatty way as if the author is actually there near or on the assembly line. Very effective.

Tina, this takes me back many

Posted on Mon, 14 Sep 2015

Tina, this takes me back many years when I was on a course in the Lake district and was persuaded by some of the participants to join them to reach the summit of the Old Man. This I did, in borrowed walking boots, puffing a lot. A venture...

Posted on Sun, 06 Sep 2015

How clever of you, Tina, to use the beginning of W.H.Auden's 'Funeral Blues', but in reverse, as a platform for your poignant message. That picture has become a symbol of the whole tragic situation and has awoken the conscience of many people....

Posted on Wed, 08 Jul 2015

There can be no greater contrast than the image offered by the helicopter, as a war machine, and Wilfred Owen's poem describing the consequences and futility of armed conflicts.

Very well done with clever rhyming, Rhiannon, and I love the title. It fulfills the brief perfectly.
Verses in rhyme do not seem to be popular on this site but I always enjoy a poem with a bouncy rhythm.

Posted on Sat, 14 Mar 2015

Hi Elsie. Why were you trying to tear yourself away from the site? I know that sometimes it is frustrating when our efforts are not widely read or commented upon but I think this is due to the sheer volume of entries rather than the lack in...
