Yes, I had a poem about getting knackered while walking in the Peak District in the summer issue of Orbis, David. Not much else to report in that line just recently! Look forward to meeting up somewhere in the new year.

Hi Greg Glad you liked the tree poem. It's recentish. Hope to make it down your way in the new year. I'm rewading again at Guildford in, I think, JUne, but have some other friends readings so might try to get down for them. Do I remember correctly seeing your name in Orbis or some such recently?

New poem I just wrote...12.30.13
Am I a number?
Perhaps just another spoke
in your wheel?
Or are your words real?
Two worlds, coming together,
one black, one white.
United by common pain but
seeking in desperation for
their own hearts to be finally right.
Bravery prevails as each person
jumps in and takes a risk,
feeling the passion but also terrible
fear that their hearts will take a hit.
So am I a number or those three
words uttered by you
My fear warns me that I will soon be
like the ones that came before me.
A distant memory,
like an old photo stuffed into
an unused drawer.
Away for your beautiful eyes,
and no longer having a forever more.
I must wait for these
answers for they are yet to be revealed.
Our fate unknown,
like a newborn child’s destiny.

I like this a lot, Deb. It's very effective in creating a feeling for words being organic elements of this mysterious world.

Hi JC - your comments on my own for "If They Come"
remind me of a pal retired back to Cumbria with
name (and belief) that suggests certain overseas origins: Swainson!
I was impressed to discover that our greatest
queen - "Good Queen Bess" - actually acted to
limit immigration (when the population wasn't
many millions) in the interest of the
social well-being of her people. Pity our modern leaders don't seem to possess the same
sense of responsibility or purpose at a time when it has increased five fold and brought with it problems in a similar ratio!

Really emotive stuff, for me at least - I think I would find it hard not to get attached.
I'd agree with Laura that the penultimate line is a powerful one.
I think you could work on the voices within this piece a bit, to make it clearer just who is saying what. Perhaps you could give the child a name and add just a little more detail about the Odeon.
All in all, a lovely piece.

lot going on in here, emma. i particularly like the use of the first and last line here but there is a lot of excellent lines in here (really).
really enjoyed this.

not a problem, emmy. feels weird thinking of myself as a experienced writer, but i guess you could say i am now.
in relation to your stuff, i would defo keep it going as there is a talent there and a very likeable charm which is essential in any creative medium.

How true! But it is also my own suspicion that
if this is done regularly, our brains can enter
a make-believe phase that does not recognise
ageing in the reflected image and we see
ourselves unchanged. No wonder the concept of
the magic mirror ("Mirror, mirror on the wall, Who's the fairest of them all?") retains its power.
There is a current exhibition of extraordinary
photos to be found online - the "Young and Old"
theme where the photographer uses older
people gazing at supposedly younger reflections
in the mirror. The effect/illusion is clever
and carries in an instant a lifetime we need
not experience ourselves.
