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.

When depressed or under the

Posted on Sat, 23 May 2020

When depressed or under the weather it is easy to emphasise the negative side of life. We feel that there is no way out. Yet it's no use bottling things up, better to let it out, as you have done. I am very laid back and take everything in my...

A subtle and refined poem

Posted on Thu, 21 May 2020

A subtle and refined poem rich with elegant phraseology recalling and yearning for the realisation of an old promise (perhaps forgotten) "in renewed anticipation, suspended in the aspic of recollection."
Altogether enjoyable.

Posted on Fri, 15 May 2020

A seed growing in a congenial environment will germinate and multiply if care is taken not to let it be smothered by weeds.  Similarly, good words and good deeds will flourish and spread if not strangled by selfishness. A sound, uplifting message...

Hello Trevor. I quite enjoyed this computer/software verbiage and as an often baffled user of Microsoft I cam appreciate the humour. I also understand that you mean the piece to be a metaphor for the actions of an incompetent politician - a sort...

Hi Rachel, catching up with reading after vainly trying to come up with something worthwhile to post and failing. Even Jessica seems to have lost her appeal.
Interesting how people's interpretations of your poetry differ. I have stopped...

Posted on Sat, 09 May 2020

Yet another poem that shows your knowledge and love of words, Rachel. The topic reminded me of the melodious cavatina in the film The Deer Hunter.

Posted on Wed, 06 May 2020

This poem is much more than a scientific explanation of the natal philopatry of an aquatic creature such as the lamprey but it contains, as all good poetry does, metaphors and philosophical points Though it professes not to be biblical or about...

Posted on Tue, 05 May 2020

I have to come clean, Rachel, and reveal that it was something you said in one of your comments that gave me the idea for this circumlocutory piece . I am not only like a squirrel but also as a thieving magpie: I tend to borrow or steal from...

A very poignant viewpoint expressed with your usual verve. Mathematics of loneliness is just perfect.

Yes Claudine, even in those days, when Italy was not an unified country but an amalgam of independent states and foreign powers, Milan was a busy commercial city. But what aggravated the situation was that, as a result of troop movements...
