I like this poem very much - a nice piece of evocation.DO you know the song? My young love said to me/"My mother won't mind...one of our haunting melodies but the words were from Padraig Colum.
Lovely creation yours.

Cheers Greg,
I felt a bit like Miss World (only fatter and older) and could quite easily have cried a bit!(cringe)
It's fab though, hell of a confidence boost,great for days like today when I have just this minute received a rejection email from a publisher who got my name wrong!:)

It was hugely complimentary in all ways. I think the poem is beautiful and written with great 'technical poetical' skill.

Cynthia, thank you for your comment on 'And Where is Your God?'. It is the first time the phrase 'consummate poetical skill' has been applied to my work and it is praise indeed which I truly appreciate. Thank you for that. I don't read as much as I should on WOL but I will make every effort and reciprocate. Wytchewoode

You have so much to say that deserves to be heard, but, here, IMO, you get a bit wishy-washy by over-emphasis. A person constantly 'bonged on the bean' soon adapts and ceases to notice. I think it is like that with words too: a few, well-chosen and well-placed, have more effect than a barrage which becomes 'white word noise'. And, to be honest, I would shape this more for easier, punchier reading; it almost slips into treatise.

I think this is captivating also. The reader is right with you emotionally. But, IMO, I would leave out the last two lines. I realize you must feel it is the pinnacle of your idea; but perhaps it turns a 'moment' into a 'lifetime' and dilutes the impact rather than enhances it.

Fast and funny. I like the ambiguity of not quite knowing the significance of the photo used, whether you are 'ooh lala-ing' a child or an adult; or vice versa. It was the use of 'tonight'.

An ode to a plastic petrol bottle or a soiled nappie or a netted seal washed on to our pristine shale, shell and sand! This is brilliant, so unorthodox of topic and lovely of execution that it creates the need to 'rethink' what rubbish actually is. Very clever.

I am aware that you may have used the term 'flotsam' as any article from a shipwreck, which association lends a peculiar potency to the beauty of your words since it could be, literally, a body.

This,being the third poem of yours which I have read tonight,doubtless suggests your love of spiritual writing-I personally,find it quite moving and love the indefinite aspect of it-the almost mergence of sprituality and hints of mythology-please keep them coming-love them! thank you-Stefan-xx

Some deep thoughts here, with some very imaginative expressions. It has an essence of beauty captured in words. Perhaps you could condense a bit and keep this vitality still intact. 'to grieve' - 'to mourn' I can understand the spelling compulsion to link it to 'grave'.

This has much imaginative charm, particular and elusive by turn. The listing technique of natural visuals sets a clear scenario for the thoughts to follow. It's hard to place the meaning of 'Heaven'(which is not a bad thing) as to whether it's an emotional state or 'a religious idea'. In short, whether or not, you're dead. Such concrete images as 'Stained colour at my feet', 'Crosses unbalanced' are two of many lovely phrases. Check spelling of 'rain-washed' and 'spiral' Probably just typos. One more point: I'd be inclined to leave out punctuation altogether; leave the reader to sort you out. I did not find that which is there all that helpful to understanding, and actually bumpy interruptives. ALL, in my opinion, of course.
