"a Thracian, a mongrel, was thrown the ground." - should it be thrown to the ground? (Just a nit-pick!) xx

thank you all, I think you all connected with the feeling, its a true story, though I was in a car park when I had the idea, the tarmac was hot and I lay down and had a sleep as it warmed my back, wonderful rest, I was healing. thanks x

a bitter sweet snapshot of the ageing animal, the hunters demise, he has found some kind of peace in bizarre pain and lazy sun, experience killed the curiosity, once the roaring ends. Perhaps the cat has had his share of the killing fields, almost like an ageing veteran coming to terms with his war years, meeting the enemy on friendly ground.

Loved this poem.

Ann I love the main first part of this poem, you probably didn't need the rest of it, it has a lovely quaint humour, I wouldn't mind actually copying the main part, using your nice picture, and putting it in a little frame, or are you saving your poems for a book, of course I wont without your permission.

Thanks Dave - it was kind of you to mention it. Yes it was a lot of fun, especially in the early days. There have been some colourful characters to allude to, regrettably not all still here. It is time to move on when you struggle to find that spark and motivation though. WOL is a constantly changing site - it will be interesting to see how they develop it. I am hopeful it will be in a way that keeps everyone happy.
And yes, I would agree that very many people work hard behind the scenes, for nothing - we are very lucky.

Hi Iz

You've said that you'll be parking WOLOP until blogs are run on a different basis (though someone else could take it over). That could mean it may not resurrect. It hasn't lasted long but while it did it brought a lot of pleasure and interest (and a lot of work for you). It shouldn't end without someone thanking you. So...um...thank you.

Makes you think - there's lots of people do stuff for WOL on a voluntary basis. Does anyone ever thank them?

I like this, it has an almost Zen like feel to it, I like the idea of just lying on your back whilst it makes contact with the earth in a grounding type way, effectively being in the zone both above and below.TC

Graham's coomments were great, very constructive. I sometimes get a blind spot for repeats so happy to take those on board. more than happy in fact - grateful!

Made a small tweak as a result, so anyone reading now, don't think Graham's gone nuts - he was absolutely right!

A nice reflective one Pete. The sea has that affect, doesn't it? Though you'd have to walk a long way to get to it in Southport - and you are normally lying in something other than sand when you get there!

I like the gentle timelessness of it all - it reminds me a bit of another poem you wrote using the sea. I also like the idea of 'throwing our troubles into orbit' - if only we could...xx
