G'day Tony, hope you don't mind me asking but your 'profile' sunset photo seems very familiar to me.
I know I've seen it somewhere before - was it taken in Africa?
It's driving me mad not knowing which site I may have seen it on.
Please put me out of my misery and tell me where it was taken...

thanks for commenting on 'Mynydd Du' Tony - yes, it was quite a difficult topic to write about because you don't want to be seen as taking advantage of an horrendous event - and yet I felt something needed to be said about it - particularly the loss of a generation and the implicit fault of the NCB in not maintaining safety standards - I appreciate you taking the time to comment

I'm bowled over to get a dedicated poem, really! Thank you Tony for even considering that. Every thought and image all works together to form an unforgettable dream of a past so woven into the fabric of England, poignant and with lots of points to gain attention in a wider context. Quite remarkable. Are you familiar with Ted Hughes' work! There is a good poem called Football at Slack, which reminds me of yours.
I think readers will be a little scared to lose themselves in your poems as they demand complete attention - like a big dose of injected imagery. In all seriousness they are worthy of a wide audience and some accolade should follow, I reckon.

I do read my stuff live and enjoy the edge of doing it. It is not actually that scary, but I feel you may very diffident. I hope you can carry on at a pace which may be possible for you. I wish I could fathom out your nihilistic comment about packing it in . Seems so unfair but only you know your own mind.

Please if you feel any impulse do so , email me , whether it is for advice or criticism (positive). I hope you do not disappear from the radar. !

Thanks a million once again. I am completely flattered.

After your comment I looked up Derek Mahon's A Disused Shed in a County Wexford.

What a treat, a fabulous piece, I enjoyed very much!
