Hi Turlough,

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.

Very much enjoyed reading and thank you...

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.

Posted on Thu, 30 Dec 2021

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

I have to admit that phones are good for taking photos, but you can't beat looking through an album of memories, and like you say if the power goes out and we can't recharge,...

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...

Posted on Mon, 06 Dec 2021

I love how you've woven a story into this poem Turlough. The rhythm and rhyme are perfect too. It's a sad story and reminds me of the American native indians who had their land taken away. People with power and loads of money always seem to win...

Hi again Rachel,

Posted on Fri, 03 Dec 2021

Hi again Rachel,

I love the idea of asking the trees how we should live, I'm sure they would tell us to live in peace and harmony and care for each other, that's if people would listen of course.

Your poem is a lovely example of...
