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.

Your lovely poem exactly describes the same thrill that I experience every Thursday at the park with my grandson. Thanks for sharing.

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.
A skilfully crafted poem, Helen. Congratulations.

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.

Excellent poetry, Bee. An apt

Posted on Mon, 08 Dec 2014

Excellent poetry, Bee. An apt metaphor for the empty nest syndrome. That procreation is no longer possible is seen as the end of a useful existence and even though some vitality remains -
