Glorious stuff Pat. Full of pathos and we are able to smell the experience. It had to be a sports jacket as that gives the image of an article worn for years as a companion. Very evocative, and wardrobes are like cells for clothes in the dark.
Nice to see a new contributor such as yourself.

Well Stu I take that as a compliment. I think we all sweat over our work - sometimes inspiration comes , other times its just an itch. I was thinking too it would be great to meet the source of all your thinking . It's such a small world online - I hope you and your family are faring well my friend.

Nice use of color imagery. The colors of the feet and the night sky. Can even put colors to things like the planets and the birdbird. And the different meanings of a kiss.

A charmingly simple declaration of love. One I think everyone can relate to from time to time when they slow down for a moment and think of the people in their lives.

This is a terribly sad poem, but I liked it very much. So many disappointments in a life well-captured here in the repetition of "box."

Aw it's nice to have a place called home and that's what a person can make you feel like it's not necessarily a house, but I like to think my place is very homely Xx

Hi Colin! Thanks very much for your remarks -- very appreciated.
When I wrote "screens" I meant literal window screens: something that lets the air in but is not quite fully "open" in that you cannot pass something back and forth between two people on both sides.
But I like your interpretations, too. Especially the idea of a smokescreen.

For every lone wolf that might be a danger, there are the
shepherds and their sheepdogs, and the police officers with their canine companions ready to protect - and deter threats to their respective flocks.

Interesting to read this - from a viewpoint and age that
have seen much come and go. The disparity between
youth and old age is nothing new, even Shakespeare
noted it in his writing; but in an era that is so advanced
materially it's a fact that there are constant referrals to
the "needs" of children, with "support" campaigns at
every turn. Is this logical? Perhaps we need to get over ourselves and take a long hard reasoned look at our
motives and at those we readily depict as deserving if
we are not to see soul-destroying socially divisive
dependency affect too many minds and lives in
the long term. Short term and efficient should surely be
the mantra is there is to be benefit to any society as a whole...encouraging youthful enterprise and self-reliance
towards the wider knowledge and considerations that
maturity sees accommodating, understanding and even embracing inevitable old age.

Ah - but my use of "extra-terrestrial" refers to its meaning
"outside the earth or its atmosphere" - using the human
viewpoint as seen in the famous photographs taken by
astronauts. Why should any other lifeform utilise any
reference to our own invented compass points when
viewing or approaching our planet?

Thanks so much for your comments, chaps. Glad you enjoyed. I've been fascinated by that map ever since I first saw it while commuting from York to Leeds back in the day. (There's a similar one at Scarborough, I've discovered). All the destinations listed in the final stanza were for individual trains that came up on the departure screen during the hour and 20 minutes I spent there on Monday.
sport? well it does read a lot better than the title it should have been given MURDER! I think the imagery you have conjured up here Rose is BRILLIANT! Thank you.Jemima.
