Cherry

Signs of Spring 7)

Star-like white flowers of blackthorn, sloe, sprinkled, sparkling on leafless hedge branches; greening of hawthorn, May-tree, with tight-flower-bud...
Cherry

Signs of Spring 6)

The gentle greening of the weeping willow by the industrial site, spiky catkins hang too, hardly noticed among the trailing leafy stems.
Gold cherry

Magnolia by street light. So strange those waxy, marble tulip-like-orbs delicate, easily spoilt by frost, that emerge from strange buds on leafless...

It's so easy to get in a

Posted on Tue, 31 Mar 2020

It's so easy to get in a whirl of busyness that you don't notice the beauties around, nor take time for the lonely who can't be so busy, or are trying to help others. I had always wondered why the beech hedges kept their dead leaves in winter too...

I haven't been out to look

Posted on Sun, 22 Mar 2020

I haven't been out to look this year, but at others, found so many of the 'Mother's Day cards' in the shops seemed to be artificial, and not realisitic for many of the ups and downs of family life.

My mother is no longer alive, and in...

Posted on Wed, 12 Feb 2020

Your writing is always very concentrated, and bubbling, I think, with metaphors, of which I'm probably not catching all! But I read this as hoarding a hope inside that you protect from attack, but aren't too sure you could really explain??...

Posted on Sun, 26 Jan 2020

It sounds a lovely haunt to revisit anyway, weather good or bad ( though beware of cliffs when the weather is bad!)

I remember in Snowdonia my youngest son (who had Asperghers) running on some rocks with glee and his slightly older brother...

Posted on Sun, 03 Nov 2019

I was interested to read your last couple of lines that seem to indicate how easily one can hide away inside oneself to loss for others and oneself.

When researching family history often there is a just a skeleton list of names and places...

You really made me realise why all my family have loved cycling. I missed the boat somewhere when growing up and never got there until on a tandem briefly. The pleasure and refreshment of fresh air at a slight speed really comes across here –...

I had read this and wanted to wait and understand more clearly when there were comments. But what I found powerful were the phrases 'A stinging lock In time tattered, her voice speaks frayed words', but especially that last phrase....

Posted on Tue, 30 Apr 2019

I like the title! There are always those unasked questions! And simple tasks and smells bring back memories and persons so keenly. In Welsh we would say that my grandmoher used 'the notion of the eye not the hand' I think, in measuring her flour...

Posted on Wed, 20 Jun 2018

I like this very much, too. I remember the word 'phototropism' from biology experiments on plants growing towards the light, but hadn't though of 'heliotropism' indicating turning towards the sun. And so I hadn't realised that is where the name...

Very credible situation with his Dad. Interesting how it comes out here the real concern his mother does have for him, and his awareness of that, though their communication together is difficult.  In some ways his special phobias/worries seem to...
