A proper garret poem, love

Posted on Sat, 08 Aug 2020

A proper garret poem, love the pinned moth image and lallate - what a pleasing word though not one I'd try to say after a couple of glasses of wine as I prune my poems late into the night. Have you let the daylight back in now? Enjoyed, made me...

I enjoyed reading this - how

Posted on Mon, 10 Aug 2020

I enjoyed reading this - how we imbue objects with meaning / connection that can soon change when the connection shifts, and your amateur digs, the hand must have been a shock! I worked as an excavator on a few sites for a time, always good fun....

I suppose that we are all

Posted on Sat, 08 Aug 2020

I suppose that we are all trying to make our way, survive in negotiation with ourselves, others, the world around us, the garden and the act of gardening is similar to me, in compromise with everything that lives in it too, and the painting...

Posted on Thu, 06 Aug 2020

I very much like the idea of nature retaining some impenetrable truths and you're quite right, I think something is lost in giving words to certain feelings, spiritual or otherwise, things can lose their magic. Some experiences are reduced with...

This is very moving, Jenny.

Posted on Thu, 06 Aug 2020

This is very moving, Jenny. Have read your explanation behind the poem. I'm so sorry that your mum was in such a distressed place and that you went through this terrible experience. Your last line has such power, given that, words are so often...

I enjoyed this. A good read.

Posted on Fri, 31 Jul 2020

I enjoyed this. A good read. I got to the end of the paragraph before the JFK paragraph, but in a way I was cheating because I'd already read it once so I knew I had to read fast (and it's easier to kid yourself a second time that you're reading...

Posted on Sun, 02 Aug 2020

I like this Penny, and I think that is so true that we are each viewing the world through our own prisms of experience. Prisms is such a good way of framing it. I like the way too that you take this from the individual to all the billions of us...

I find this very moving

Posted on Sat, 01 Aug 2020

I find this very moving Trevor, as if one realises one's own existence in knowing another - and that the another might be a nostalgic sense of a former self. That's if I have grasped your meaning, and if not, that's what I took from it anyway! It...

Posted on Sat, 01 Aug 2020

I like the idea of marmalade, buttered toast and sunlight. I'm sure the willow is speaking in code too - trees talk to each other regularly. It's a pity we can't hear them. The willow as a veil / grieving is a lovely image too. Very nice thoughts...

Thanks ld, glad you thought

Posted on Sat, 01 Aug 2020

Thanks ld, glad you thought so. Triboelectrical is not a word I made up, it is the word for static electricity which is shared, in this case, between bees and flowers. The bees build static in flight which leaves them positively charged, they are...
