Hi Dominique, thank you for taking the time to read my poem. I read your profile Biography and poems and nearly cried! I use poetry and singing and dancing in the same way. As an expression and a release. You are so very honest and your words are very real and beautiful. Just wanted to let you know that you touched my soul and am sure you are inspiring many others to have more courage to be real in this world. x

The white feather treatment meted out in those days was harsh indeed - and often a sign of
the mob effect on those whose situations were
invariably unknown to the perpetrator(s).
However, I admit ambivalence on the subject of
conscientious objectors. I can understand
their loathing of taking life but don't see why
they cannot serve - as stretcher bearers etc.
Otherwise, they seem unwilling to take part
but ready enough to enjoy the results of the
sacrifice of others even unto death once the conflict is over.
That is beyond my understanding or sympathy.

There are no neat guidelines to this kind of 'prosetry' except identifying a condensed moment, first by seeing the whole and then its parts. It follows the exact 'formula' for short story development: plot; place setting; sequencing; character development; imagery; interesting ending, using all the normal methods but in minimum words. So the crux is vocabulary at your finger tips, and the poetry skills that come into play with the writing of good poetry in any genre. Rhythm is vital.


This 'style' requires great discipline to put the maximum effect possible into a nutshell of content.

IMO, a sense of humour is a requisite.

Hi James
Thank you sincerely for your very kind words.
I just want you to know that you have a wonderful blog of work.
Anyone who has ever been smitten by love should be able to relate to your work 'On the Influences of Love'... delete 'dime store' and insert 'poundshop' for the people of the UK.. but it is great as it is.

'The Slow Boy' is a beacon of hope for anyone, regardless of gender, with confidence and self-belief.
"It's amazing what that boy achieved
When he failed to listen, but believed...

I hope that somebody more articulate than I could read, comment and maybe analyse your poem 'A River' (after first reading your preface 'I thought to try something different').
It is indeed a most beautiful piece of work.

I am humbled that you like my stuff! Thank you.

An unusual topic that brought back my own childhood and memories of big red chairs with
those foot levers that barbers used to raise & lower the infant customer...part of a long-gone
premises opposite Paignton railway station in
South Devon. You had to walk through a shop to
get to the barbers at the rear...a strange
place to a child: full of men and their talk, cigarette smoke, and the smell of hair lotion.
And, of course, that sinister hiss of a strop
razor expertly wielded behind a recipient's
uneasy reflected stare.
