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 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...

Posted on Fri, 31 Jul 2020

Thanks littleditty, am glad you like my raptor pondering. Yes, just recycling. The buzzards / grouse situation is grotesque, so distressing. Yeah, humans indeed, all the mindlessly cruel stuff that we do is just inexcusable. Thanks for reading it...

It's a very beautiful poem

Posted on Fri, 31 Jul 2020

It's a very beautiful poem and you've captured the sense of the impermanence of things; summer, life. The worm/ blackbird reference is clever. Interesting to read again with the context you've given. Sorry to hear that you lost your brother....

Posted on Mon, 27 Jul 2020

This perfectly evokes the imagination vs reality of these kinds of encounters. Gave me a smile. I told someone the other day about a cyclist and I who wave to one another every morning. I got told I should get out more! Something romantic about...
