Wandering through your poem,

Posted on Sun, 06 Feb 2022

Wandering through your poem, you touched my senses, I felt like I was experiencing an adventure, especially in those lines:-

then luminous silence tips, full

of stipply falling feathered ice

as swiftly stops, and in the lull...

What an amazing journey

Posted on Wed, 02 Feb 2022

What an amazing journey Turlough. I can never get over how much adventure you've experienced in your life. To have shown those children so much kindness, gives me faith that there are good people in the world.

The language barrier never...

This works so well on both lyrical and poetic levels. What a lovely story behind this poem. I so admire your love for these cats, you and Priyatelka are perfect examples of caring and loving people.

Hi Penny,

I like the fact that although Dillon could be the suspect, you are still keeping the suspense going as this mystery progresses. As always Willow comes across as a very wise cat.

Still very much enjoying.

Jenny.

This was so creepy, I thank

Posted on Sun, 02 Jan 2022

This was so creepy, I thank goodness that I don't ever get involved with anything but ABC Tales. I have been stupid in the past and been hit with some scams, but you live and learn. This story was something else, a lot more scary.

Hope you...

The drink may not have been

Posted on Sun, 02 Jan 2022

The drink may not have been your best friend, but you certainly made some memories Turlough.

My partner nearly died when he was born, but his nan gave him a tiny bit of brandy on her finger, and it revived him, so not all bad.

I had a right good laugh

Posted on Thu, 30 Dec 2021

I had a right good laugh reading this...of course as always.

Of course the misletoe has

Posted on Thu, 30 Dec 2021

Of course the misletoe has sadly got a bad reputation, but your poetic words emanate their beauty too. I like the idea that if there ever was a secret of the berries, it's the mistle thrush who only knows, adds a touch of mystery that we as...

A poem that becomes all too

Posted on Wed, 29 Dec 2021

A poem that becomes all too familiar as I get older. 

Significant lines for me:-

Yew trees (Stoical) standing in silence,

winter robins singing - lift solemn spirits.

Flowers lying in grave beds decaying,

floral...

So much put into this poem

Posted on Fri, 10 Dec 2021

So much put into this poem Turlough. That sixth stanza reminds me of old times when on holiday with girl friends, we would get dressed up ready to hit the night clubs, and of course see if we could pick up some guys...these things just had to be...
