I thought first 3 verses were very good - so phantom were her dreams is a great line, as Ann said - though I don't think the rest lived up to expectaions.Partly because I'm not familiar with the myth but also I thought the quality of writing waned. It's gangrene by the way.

Absolutely charming Ann. I didn't like the "very nice" (waste of words) or the reference to Classic FM but the sentiment shone through.Well done.

The opening and the ending are both so sublime and all the words in between are very nicely put together. I love the emotion and the short lines of this.

Thank you so much for your comments on Persephone's Creek, that's exactly what I wanted the shoes to represent :) They were the starting point for my poem actually, it only got the title and mythological theme later.
I love Upong the Quality of love by the way, it flows so smoothly and reads so beautifully. You're a very talented poet xxx

Hi Ann - I was into digital photo editing to a small extent 25 years ago - but it was getting my hands on the RISC OS system that radically improved things for me - Photodesk was incredibly powerful even 15 years ago - much easier than Photoshop on the PC. You can of course buy photo clip art discs with 'royalty free' images on them - a safe way to find a suitable image. My own interest was born out of the need to provide large images for exhibition panels - most enlargements looked 'blocky' or pixelated when we used the zoom functions on our big colour copier, so I would scan the images into the computer and do what I could to soften the ragged edges, hehe. It can be fun playing with photo editors, but I've yet to find a windows program I like to use for that purpose. best wishes, Dave
Fri 6th Aug 2010 11:20
Interesting about the photo Dave. Are you well up on this sort of stuff? I am in a pickle over photos at the mo. I often used to use stuff from Flikka but now Flikka seems to have changed and you can't copy/save an image (or I don't seem to be able to!) I suppose it was prob not legal or something to use the photos? But it was called "Photo sharing" so I did! Will I have to get a camera now and spend all day taking photos to use? And scan stuff from books etc (prob illegal too?) Or have no photo image to go with a poem? That always seemed an integral part of it to me. Oh pooh! xx

Hehe - and who am I to deny it Ann? ;) The picture is a composite I made from some of my digital photos - the sky from the fens, the wildfowl from Peakirk bird park, the 'house' derived from the village school house - all heavily edited in Photodesk about 12 years ago on my trusty RISC-OS computer... Best wishes, Dave

Fri 6th Aug 2010 10:36
Hehe - well there you go - Ann was correct in her assumption :) I thought you might have read this one before on one of the other sites Larisa. It is a purely phonetic (or fun-etic)poem of nonsense, with a nod or 3 to Lewis Carroll :) Best wishes, Dave

Hi, Dave! This poem I can't understand either. lol I can only guess. Is it Welsh?

I like this one - tis one I can identify with and a favourite subject of mine. I like the way you have woven it with myth. The shoes seem to represent a sell out and entrapment in your poem - I think shoes are wonderful images - they can represent so many things.
Fri 6th Aug 2010 08:51
Knowing you, is there some weird reason for her name? (A follow up called Opening Ceremony perhaps? ;-)) Reminds me of that song "If you can't be the one you love, love the one you're with" (which has never worked for me alas!) xx
Fri 6th Aug 2010 08:50
Hi Ann, thanks for commenting in the spirit of the nornesaynce, hehe. I shouldn't worry about Larisa tho', I think she will have seen this one before, but if not she knows me well enuf! Best wishes, Dave

Good stuff, Heather.. You defo should get out and perform your pieces more.
On this piece I really enjoyed this - however on this line you may have a word missing 'She would prophecy of dresses' x

these images express the golden ratio of fibonacci sequence in nature.
ive no idea why your poem reminded me of the rule now other than because its complex structure forms a simple image that is beautiful and can be appreciated on either a complex or simple level.
This mathematical rule either understands or expresses numerous occurances in natures beauty...fascinating

Hi, Stefan! This poem, as to my opinion, is the best. I love it so much. I remembered my father who taught me a lot. Thank you for sharing. Your poems always inspire me for writing something new. And... now....I am sure....I;ll write about my father.
With love and warmest wishes,

Rachel. I actually googled "golden rule in nature" there's so many of them! No silver or bronze rules that us lower classes might aspire to live by, all is golden. So which one do you mean?
