Yeh, I used to capitalise every single line until probably only a few months ago tbh. Like you, didn't really think about it, til someone pointed it out, and then when you re-examine the lines, sometimes, it seems better to use lower-case if it is a follow-on from the preceding line, know what I mean? Now I've gone the other bloody way and tend not to capitalise anything!

Hey hey, JC old bud; re: 'get it out'? Can't I be arrested for that? But joking aside, thanks mate.

i have a tendency to capitalise each line and i dont know why. It must of been the poets early on that i was reading and just assumed everyone did it. Ive kinda got used to it now, feels natural.

this is wonderful. My cat always helps me to write -she takes the pen from me, at first cautiously, gently, then with an eye blink, lightening strike of raptor claws she chases it across the desk, the bed, the kitchen worktop.Whether this is a comment on the quality of my work (or lack thereof) or because she has poetic ambitions of her own, I don't know. Maybe she's just hungry.
PS boy you rise early!

A-Ha my derioes, Do'st thou trouble thy fingers upon them keys, or hast thou put they hands upon a new home lot, never mind anyway I think Nick's lost the plot. Tonsured Pate, I believe, is the phrase we are all looking for. Bald covers, or doesn't cover, it nicely. Ta much, Nick.

Are they throwing it away though, or are they living each day to its fullest? Are they aware that with each day, we are all one day closer to death? That we should make the absolute most of every second, because none of us know when our time is up? Should they be preserving their youth by not drinking, not smoking, when they are going to age like everyone else anyway?

Beautiful. That first verse is jampacked with fantastic images...'water laps tight curls' :)
I just looked up Seaford Head on google images - wow!
I like the structure of this - quite unusual.
And that's never a photo of you, is it?!

Not sure if that's a compliment or not Harry ;p
Mmm, I considered that re Mavis and the last verse, but I wanted to put some kind of break between the immediate childhood eyes and the adult perspective.
Thanks both for reading and taking time to comment. I would so love to go back to that room, it was so utterly peaceful, and time and space would just stretch out.

I think this captures that quiet time of early morning and the insistence of mogs really well. Love this line 'her paws step softly on the paper' - sounds wonderful. I thought this described the person-cat relationship very well.

Good to hear that, Emma. Sadly, it's on a night that I'm usually working, but I will get along some time!

Newcastle Brown was very trendy when I was briefly at uni; I think it was partly to do with Lindisfarne being all the rage. I used to drink it religiously, until one day I realised it was far too sweet and I actually didn't like it at all. Can't remember those side-effects, though.

Not too long now until second childhood, but this time round it won't be the Newcastle Brown Ale.
And good to see your writing has progressed beyond shit since then.

Like the Fivepenny Piece that much that I transferred 12 of the LP to disc so that I could listen to them in the car.
