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.

Like everything else, you

Posted on Fri, 10 Jan 2020

Like everything else, you have to learn the technique and there is no danger in looking at the spider through the glass; in fact by keeping it in your sight you will be sure that it hasn't escaped capture in the meantime. As an additional...

All Japanese poems are

Posted on Fri, 03 Jan 2020

All Japanese poems are syllabic, Di. There are several forms each containing lines with a variable numbers of syllables. The lantern poem with 1, 2, 3, 4 and 1 is the most minimalist after the haiku, I believe.

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.

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.
