Not the grocer’s apostrophe, Uilleam. The cafe’s.

Oooooh apos'trophe abuse-painful!
Is that the Grocers" apo'strophe variant?
I think they rolled out a vaccination for it a while back.
Fri 3rd Feb 2023 07:59
Very well expressed.
Are you able to put this on audio Stephen?
Well beings: who're actually unwell - reminding me of the "strava slaves" on the running club website.

I find that layout makes me "search?" or work for the next word- and as a result, pay more attention to what I'm reading...........?

What a disconnection (cognitive dissonance?) between the horrors we know are taking place, and mindless "entertainment" all via our screens at the same time.

There is a saying, that if you truly love someone, you must be prepared to "let go".
Difficult but true?

A definite whiff of Betjeman about this, Trevor, although perhaps he would avoided the climbing. It reads so well. A lovely poem.

I would guess that the premise is flawed, Holden. But the poem is good!
Thu 2nd Feb 2023 21:30
A fine, intriguing poem, Telboy.
Thu 2nd Feb 2023 21:24
A wonderful conclusion, Hélène.
Thu 2nd Feb 2023 21:19
Thank you, Kevin. Life is certainly scary if you are in the wrong country at the wrong time at the moment.
And thanks to Holden, K Lynn, Jeronth, John C, Hélène, New Shoes and KJ.

The coolest top-knot ever, Stephen, Yul Brynner as Taras Bulba.

It is my thing performance, Martin, and was written with that in mind, thank you. Your are welcome to speak it and posted it. It would be interesting to hear how you hear it, if you know what I mean.
Well put John

I think this would work particularly well as a live piece performed before an audience.
Thu 2nd Feb 2023 15:50
I am not usually one given to a lot of rhyming , but this works well in this piece. I was drawn in immediately by the title
Thu 2nd Feb 2023 15:47
I like the way this trips a long at a good pace.

This is beautiful Mike.

Tá fáilte romhat, Uilleam, Yes the pubs can be distracting. But there are some hours when they're not open, so next time, take time to look around. This poem's about Muckish mountain which is in Donegal (in the top left-hand corner of Ireland! 😉)
And thanks John. It is indeed a timeless landscape that I enjoy every time I return. It sort of sucks the world's troubles out of your bones.

Go raibh maith agat Trevor.
We've been to Ireland twice, but sadly didn't do any proper "hiking"-accosted as we were by pubs which had a habit of jumping out in front of us!
Thu 2nd Feb 2023 09:27
Ladies and Gentlemen,
raise your glasses please,
a toast to the picket line!

Wonderful and timeless imagery, Trevor, wrapped in a comforting rhythm.
