DAWN CHORUS

2022-02-09
I love the dawn chorus, but I can see it would not appeal to all :-)

Live On

2021-11-19
I don't fully understand this poem but I do know that it made me feel and sometimes I think, you don't have to understand everything, it is how, when reading it makes you feel - probably explaining this very ineptly but it touched me

In the Heat of Summer

2021-08-07
I love this poem, I love the way you weave the flowers and the heat and I could feel that stillness, that heat can bring - sort of breathless - just superb

Lightly Sauteed Feelings

Definitely, best way with onion and garlic lightly sauteed!

Making Bread

2021-05-29
I remember as a child, our housekeeper went through a stage of making bread and I remember helping with kneading the dough - I think it was just a phase tho, we had a wonderful baker run by Monsieur Schmidt and would buy baguettes, then later the rather horrible a doughy portuguese rolls.

I enjoyed - I think I will stick with buying my baguette though lol but I do recall the smell of cooking bread is to die for lol

Lonely

2021-05-26
I think many of us can relate - there is another world you inhabit after someone you love has passed on. I remember when my father died, leaving the hospital and a friend called wanting to moan about work and I was struck between the surreal feeling of sudden loss and the mundane.

Morning meditations

2021-05-14
I could have been walking through my garden, I could smell the air and that slight freshness - my clematis has been a tad slow this year as it was so dry here - I enjoyed

Gentle and contemplative, spring is surely here

In memory of my father

2021-04-04
Tears are easier to shed on loss as you grow older, as a child, the expected is always unexpected and reactions are different - I didn't cry either, I was too young and didn't understand the finality of death. I did cry when my father died but I was an adult then

My tree

Nothing better than a good tree hug

The Blue Tinged Zinger

2021-03-29
I have become the mask lady, I have them everywhere and of all kinds - for school, the visers, for shopping an array of multi coloured ones - no, sadly shopping is not a pleasure these days and I go rarely and order online, glad your fictional lady was just that

I Donít know what to Feel

2021-03-27
She is your inspiration and my deepest condolences for your loss

How would you go about it?

2021-03-08
Ah a problem, I have to agree with shells, although I am a bit of a Thomas and tend to just grumble to myself as I hate confrontations of any kind - but I think shells is right to affect an introduction and mention that sounds do carry.

Hope it works out as noisy neighbours can be draining

The Snug

2021-03-08
Sounds wonderfully cosy, having always lived in large cavernous homes, my childhood home, we had what was called the breakfast room, where we would camp out for the winter before moving back to the drawing room - we children had our own space which we called the rumpus room

Spring in Twilight Denouement

2021-03-05
And so the seasons pass - and so you shall enjoy those long hot days :-)

Big school

2021-03-05
Those were the days! Our schools have not closed and I have been working throughout the pandemic at school - great fun reminding boys to put their masks on! I remember being sent to boarding school in England - it was a culture shock at the time and so damn cold!!!! This made me smile

An Old And Joyous Adversary

2021-02-02
Never really having known snow - we only occasionally have had some here and then no more than a flurry! I enjoyed reading and could picture the pipe, smoke curling and a warm fire

Culinary Guillotine

2021-01-02
Ooooh, poor sliced thumb! Sounds as if it would have been good before all the bloodshed! You should see my scars from opening oysters (you would think I would have learnt the 1st time, but oh no, my love of shellfish surpasses common sense!) Happy New Year and speedy recovery to said thumb!


Cocooning

2020-12-26
Sounds like you had a contented Christmas, I am glad in this the timeless zone

Jazz With Fond Memories of Long Forgotten Times

2020-12-19
I can feel that sand right now! Smell that seabreeze - the sea and music are my lifeblood - I used to play in a jazz band back when I was studying music - and those brief encounters when we would crowd into a smoke filled apartment, thank you for your memory which stoked my memories of times past and loves long lost

Flashes of Christmas Memories

2020-12-19
What happened to tinsel? I recall this sugared almonds and midnight singers at the door and polished marble in the hall that we used to spin on. Lovely memories, though very poignant this year - my grandson is too young being a pandemic baby so won't have this year as a memory but I hope he has many others that will keep him warm throughout his life.

Happy Christmas

Vaccine, sung to the Tune of Jolene

2020-12-19
I'm hoping for the vaccine! Think I'm a way down the list still and so long as this new strain doesn't get me, I wear my mask and absolute joy I don't have to be grabbed into unwelcomed hugs and kissed all the time, there are some silver linings! I hope poor Dolly has her jab soon!

Happy Christmas and a safe new year to you

The bare neccesities of life?

2020-10-29
You must be in Wales :-) Don't quite see the correlation with lockdown and buying non essentials, so long as you do it in a timely fashion:-)

2020-10-29
Ah Chemistry, not one of my strong suits, I always somehow muddle up the elements :-)

Morning Autumn Coffee

2020-10-03
Sitting here with a cup of coffee I can smell the aroma and feel the moisture of damp leaf. We have storm ongoing for the last day or so, interspersed with hot sunshine.

Lovely and evocative as I remembered childhood days in Autumn

putting in a request

I can recommend the island, it is paradise - as to your companion, long may she make you laugh and smile - the island I think would be the coup de gr‚ce

Excellent, dark and full of emotion.

Viral Thoughts

2020-04-30
It is a strange time, so many emotions and feelings - each day, I dust off my brain and sift through, finding little treasures and thoughts - no two days the same - I love the cash register - I remember well those pings!

Precious Kindness

2020-03-29
I would say these events of late have brought into stark reality, the best and worse - fortunately I think the best does so often shine harder as your poem says, let us all be kind and I hope that kindness will be something that everyone derives from these events.

THESE TIMES ARE PROVEING TIMES (Additans)

2020-03-25
these times bring out the worst and best in many, what you have to keep in mind when seeing the worst, is that a lot of people are scared and uncertain - for so many this is something they have never had to contemplate before. So hang in and perhaps be willing to forgive those whose anxiety makes them unkind.

At Eyam

2020-03-22
I was watching a small piece on the bbc website about this village only this morning and then I spot this. It was interesting how this village isolated themselves during the plague - and I was walking with you as I read and could feel the peace and beauty and reflection of centuries gone by and comparisons today

voyage

2020-03-20
It is a voyage, one I wish would end soon but looks like we're in for the long haul - has an almost snow day feel to it - a suspension of reality
