Congratulations on Pick of the Week, Tina, and all those baskets of cherries!
You have such an eye for noticing the details of your situations and remembering them and communicating them. I was puzzled by your ref to Fleetwood Mac and the...

Good to read your good longings and prayer, and may the light and truth of God's words make you to 'grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever! Amen' (2 Peter 3:18) and you will...Read full comment

I like it very much too, Tina, and its butterfly attendants. Good to have the flowers when others have ceased. But I especially thought your juxtaposition with the vivid raw images of the neglected, defiled places which it so often brightens was...Read full comment

I enjoyed your journey among the changing shades. Your spaces are much more vast than in England's farms and countryside, I think.

This is very well 'sculpted', Bee, and the interweaving rhymes heighten the flow. So much unsaid, left to the imagination, including what kind of love could lead to such a parting, and the finality of not being able to yet ask that question...Read full comment

I liked this very much too. Concise, but not obscure. Actually, I thought that the rhino's horn looks like a pointed bone, so poetic licence! Particularly liked 'Labouring body lumbers' alliteration.
