Posted on Tue, 23 Aug 2022

This is such a fond elegy for someone passing. I too am sorry for your loss Paul.

These lines stood out to me so much:-

Night comes wearing its cloak

of sable skies and constellations,

moonbeams filter through glass...

Much love and respect goes

Posted on Mon, 22 Aug 2022

Much love and respect goes out to anyone suffering any mental disorder. I myself nearly went through this condition in my early thirties, but managed to pull through without any tablets. It was only with the help of my health visitor taking me to...

It must have been so

Posted on Fri, 10 Jun 2022

It must have been so difficult back then to arrive at a destination, not knowing whether it was safe or not. Then to be faced with unprepared firing. Arent really needs Cadwaller's friendship now more than ever.

You've described the drama...

I got so engrossed in this

Posted on Fri, 03 Jun 2022

I got so engrossed in this part, I actually felt like a fly on the wall watching the scene pan out. From Aren't telling Cadwaller of his plans to escape to the Caribbean, which was so hard on both men, because I can understand each side of the...

Hi Mark,

Posted on Wed, 01 Jun 2022

this is another enthralling part to read.

I hope you don't mind, but I was walking in the forest the other day, and felt compelled to write a poem about Elowen. Your story is so inspiring, but If you would prefer I didn't put the poem on...

I'm in absolute agreement

Posted on Thu, 07 Apr 2022

I'm in absolute agreement with you. I did buy my first phone some months ago, but only to take photos, I got so fed up of it just lying around, never being used, that in the end I gave it to my son who I knew would make more use of it than me....

a wonderful sense of calm in

Posted on Mon, 28 Mar 2022

a wonderful sense of calm in this piece Rhiannon, like the end to a perfect day has been achieved and you've just sat down to write about it.

I love the photos too, they fill the heart with gladness...as does your poem.

Jenny.

Hear! Hear! Rhiannon. These

Posted on Fri, 25 Mar 2022

Hear! Hear! Rhiannon. These words are so important. We all need that special someone we can depend on, and know they can depend on us too.

It brings to mind when our fence blew down, instead of getting in someone professional, me and my...

Very much enjoyed reading

Posted on Fri, 04 Mar 2022

Very much enjoyed reading Jane. It's amazing where new ideas for stories come from, but you seem to have the knack for creating situations, and this was marvellous, could actually see it being played out on the tv screen, but have to settle for...

The view you've created with

Posted on Wed, 16 Feb 2022

The view you've created with words is spectacular. I just love castles and the one in your photo shows so much of the antiquity of the past, a period of impressions I find so appealing, with a backdrop of a distant neighbouring town and far...
