I really like this. You get across the picture so well. I like the fact that you tell it like it is - but poetically - it's so easy to lose sight of the poetry sometimes, when you are telling a story.
Sun 15th Jul 2012 20:57
thank you both
Sun 15th Jul 2012 19:38
LOL! Great poem. Made me smile and laugh. Don't get enough of these. Funny!
Thanks for the laugh.

What a great picture you paint Jane. I can really imagine it. Yes - I think many of us are sat here wondering what happened to summer. I think we should call this the lost season. I'm not a gardener but find it interesting that even insects should have been affected by all this rain. What worrying impacts all this must have.
I'm still finding maggots in my green wheeley bin though - I'm blaming it on Wigan council's new kitchen top compost recycyling programme. It's the subject of another poem I haven't got time to write - maybe you could :)
Sorry if I'm making light of your poem, which is a gem - tis my way to prattle on.
Hope you are well. x

Anyone with that "untaught love of place" will identify with these lines of exultation. I have similar feelings for this great city of London.
"London is my life to me, much more to me than stone.
London's like a wife to me, a love to call my own."
Thanks Larisa for putting your own love of place so well.

If John Wesley were alive, I'm sure he would be content to claim these words. Well suited to a church hymn. I agree about the "wonder of it all" but think not so much in terms of a "greater being" as a "greater power" that defies our (increasing but still pathetically limited) human understanding. I see us all on some extraordinary journey through successive generations to eventual enlightenment...with reincarnation not such a fanciful notion after all.

I agree, a great flow of words conveying sorrow and despair. Especially like "the thickness of its venom" and the last verse.

I look back on the Olympics with nostalgia - to a time when I HAD time to sit around and watch telly :) I loved watching any sport that involved dance and beauty so ice dancing and gymnastics were my favourite. Gymnastics seemed to change from an artform into a child tumbling exercise though - the new breed were all very supple and skilled but lacked the elegance.
So whilst I appreciated art, you appreciated wet T shirts and shorts - hmmm - typical man ;)x

I have always denied the existance of a greater being, but frankly as I get older I wonder at the wonder of it all.

Hi Anthony, just checked you out because you commented on my poem (thanks) and found 'Visiting Neil'. I've never heard of him before and was so moved by his story and then I discovered your poem - beautiful, absolutely beautiful and I'm in
great need of a bag like that - thanks I really enjoyed reading it.
