Lovely poem, Richard. I love

Posted on Sun, 24 Dec 2017

Lovely poem, Richard. I love the natural rhythm of this. It fits the reflective mood. Well-chosen and economical words. "dance of field and sky" is wonderfully evocative.

Great stuff, well-wisher.

Thank you Fatboy74! Chuffed

Posted on Sun, 19 Nov 2017

Thank you Fatboy74! Chuffed to little meatballs or whatever we're chuffed to. Lots and lots about autonomous machines, driverless cars and artificial intelligence around about now. The big project is leaking out. Those in the know are conceding...
