Hi Graham,
Many thanks for the hello.
I think I'll put up 'Weeping Beasts' to open the garden gate. Tiny bit heavier but worth a blast - I hope!
Ta much,

Hi Graham

Thanks re I-Museum. That was the first thing I wrote upon joining the site in September 2010 - first thing I ever really properly wrote, in fact, so glad you liked it :)

Had a look at your page and yes, you were right, I DO like that poem! Never heard of Tadeusz Ròzewicz before but I just had a quick look at some of his stuff and wow - I must read some more of his writing, it's incredible!!

I will keep an eye out for more of your writing - I suspect I may enjoy it. ;)
