This is gorgeous Penny. I too

Posted on Wed, 08 Jul 2020

This is gorgeous Penny. I too am a night person, though I do not have the distractions of the day like you do. It's just me and my partner in our old age, but the night time inspires, as I can see it does for you. Being able to let go and just be...

I don't think this is cheesy

Posted on Mon, 06 Jul 2020

I don't think this is cheesy at all. I went for a walk up on the ridge way and can completely understand how inspired you would be, it really shows in this beautiful poem. The gentle movement comes across of being part of the peace of nature,...

Your story reminded me of my

Posted on Sun, 17 May 2020

Your story reminded me of my own dad who died of cancer, he too was a great book reader. The bit about shaving your dad, I've been there too, it's so strange to think we never really know a parent until we reach that age we remember them at. ...

Posted on Fri, 01 May 2020

I agree with Di, you've captured that feeling of taking the time to think and care about others around. It's a much more caring and polite world we're living in at the moment. Like you say strangers are stopping to smile. There doesn't seem to be...

I like how you write of

Posted on Wed, 08 Apr 2020

I like how you write of nature looking on the positive side. If we allow ourselves to just be rather than thinking too much, then life what ever the situation isn't all that bad. An optimistic poem indeed.

Hope you are keeping well Rachel...

Hi Rachel, 

you know when I was young I had a best friend named Gina, we were almost like twins and could read each others minds. I really do hope your friend gets better soon.

I like how in this poem you keep the faith of optimism...

What an adorable poem Penny, you've captured his essence perfectly. I'm so sorry to read Frankie has cancer, this must be an awfully sad time for you, but your poem is a great tribute to such a wonderful friend and I'm sure he knows how much you...

I could relate to your words

Posted on Sun, 26 Jan 2020

I could relate to your words in this poem. It's never a good idea to go back to old haunts because when you see the changes it's like breaking the dream and what you remember looses some of its sparkle. 

I did once visit the street where...

Hi onemorething,

let me just first say I can't believe I missed this poem. You describe so well the abundance of beautiful wildlife that's disappearing before our very eyes. 

Your love of nature really shines through in your words....

Hi Rhiannopn,

Hi Rhiannopn,

Is'nt the makeup of the human a wonderful creation? It's only when we really think about it...as in your poem, that we realize just how incredible it really is.

A poem with a lot of thought put in.

Jenny....
