Posted on Wed, 18 Jul 2018

I know exactly what your saying, especially in that last line. As I get older it becomes obvious that life is repeated over and over by generations of people coming up behind me, walking in my shadow.

At least that's how I read it. A...

Posted on Sat, 14 Jul 2018

Some wonderful use of metaphors here like:-

To a pond that softly brooks and whispers,

Like nut-brown skin that lolls across

settees of dappled

Funnily enough my partner's going night fishing with his son this weekend, so I expect he will be sitting thinking of me and I of him. Nice thoughtful poem.

Posted on Tue, 03 Jul 2018

Oh Penny, I so enjoyed reading this piece. Your shared thoughts reminded me of my own dad and how I felt when he sadly died and having to sort out the many records in his collection. Did your dad play the piano? If he did then again you would...

Posted on Wed, 23 May 2018

I can't believe I missed reading this beauty Di. I love the way you describe the tiny leaves as clasped hands joined in prayer. I always love to sow marigold seeds, they're so easy to grow and your poem described exactly how they first appear....

I have to say that I really enjoyed that first stanza, I  could just picture a moss covered wall and on the other side a bank leading down to a woodland of bluebells.

I enjoyed your poem Di, it had a lighthearted feel to it as I read. I could feel the cool air as the turbines rotate.

Relaxing read.

I had this vision in my mind

Posted on Thu, 12 Apr 2018

I had this vision in my mind's eye of a woman sitting on a cliff top looking out to sea and reminiscing of lost love. I know I'm probably miles away from what your poem was saying, but I found it so haunting and sad, yet so poetic and written...

I can understand exactly where you're coming from Richard. It takes so many hours of hard writing and searching for answers to your questions, I think only other writers really understand the amount of time that goes into putting a piece of work...
