I like this Tommy, we can all dream. The mood is interesting, sighing at the missiles as if almost bored with expectancy.

A new cynical style is evolving here I see. It's more plainspoken than your other work and tougher, that's good, another side to your sentiment. So good to be seeing more of you in all ways, presence and content. Well done again.

Thank you for the feedback on 'Me / u',
I read what you said and made the slight changes to the wording, I think for the better.
Again, thanks Winston.

Very good title.
I like your wording, it makes me think back to some of my own poetry.
The imagery used for the chocolate cup cake was cleaver. Very good read - I enjoyed it.

Thanks for that. I've been reading the 'Regeneration Trilogy' by Pat Barker. Found all three of them very moving. I suppose it's a homage and a tribute to the victims of war, Especially the first world war.

Simon! I loved Little Machines. Particularly liked Bloomdusk. When I read British, Not Pure it put me in mind of a book I recently read; Bloody Foreigners by Robert Winder..a history of immigration to the British Isles. Cheers!

Hello Dave - many thanks for your comments - er... have I spelt lie wrong? Have I made my poem more deep and meaningful - if so - must have done it on purpose! Wracking my brains to work out what else I've spelt wrong - or should that be racking? Thanks again, xx
Oh yes! I see what I did!

At last I have arrived here to say thanks for approving comment left on my page. In my usual way, I feel inclined to dub your style 'Till Role' (much as I gave the name 'Marzipan School' to the paintings of a friend, featuring bendy houses.
I like the devices used but have to admit - perhaps it's my age - to keep starting a new line, leaves me exhausted! Cheers.

Hi Ann Foxglove... I see we have a mutual admiration for Gaia Holmes. she is not a prolific poster on WOL but is as you have commented an amazing poet who can capture moments like no one else IMHO. Win

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful stuff. And not just because there's some foxgloves in one of your poems. Heady, lyrical and passionate.

I like your poems very much, also your drawing - are you just about to sit down and write a poem or have you just finished and you're off to get a cup of tea? The paper looks very blank! And you look a little anxious! I think I would like to live in a softly furnished vestibule, but as I have only just joined WOL I feel more like the child listening at the edge of the wood!

Morning Jane, Im glad my poem on the Taj gave you some idea of what it was like and how I felt on seeing it, thats what I set out to do. It was a truly magical experience and one one that will stay printed on my memory for ever.
Thanks also for your comment on Sunflowers again. Its good when a piece of work makes an impression and is not forgotten.

Hi Dave, thanks for the welcome back, and for the comment on Taj. I had a most wonderous trip, and saw and did some wonderous things, But the Taj was the one that stays indelibly printed in my memory. I last spoke to you when you were just off to Israel, hope you had an interesting and memorable hol there.

Morning Cynthia, thanks for your lovely comment on Taj. I had the most fabulous trip and the memory of the Taj will stay printed indelibly on my mind forever. And yes I own up to being a sentimentalist..... I defy anyone not to look at such beauty and not be moved! You were so right about the poverty though. At first you are stunned at the awful conditions and the dirt and poverty in which most of the people live, but gradually rightly or wrongly your mind accepts it as part of life in a third world country. There is a huge difference between the fabulous wealth of the maharajas and their palaces and how the rest of the population live. And yet there is a vibrancy about it that we somehow seem to have lost.

Hi Cynthia, thanks for your great support of Horse Power, written as a companion to Apple Power. Your comments have really encouraged me! I like the Girl in the Lake poem but would take the word path out of the swan line as without it I feel the swans glide better?I dont know if you'd agree. Its a really deep and emotional poem but has a positive ending, a learning from experience perhaps.

'Where thicket-thick thighs ache
Across crow- flocked meadows.
Tramping over salt-skinned ditches,
Feet swollen like buds to bursting,'
A wonderful...err...quatrain? 'Salt skinned ditches' is particularly evocative, reminds me of the Suffolk coast.
And thank you for your kind comments on my meagre offering.

Thank you for your kind comments on my last offering (only my second). 'Larkinesque' eh? Well, apart from the 4 lines of Larkin that everbody knows, I've never read him......I will now!
I'll take 'Larkinesque' any day : )

Thoroughly enjoyed and admired this. Carefully observed and skilfully expressed. " Larkinish," - and I hope you'll take that as a compliment.Regards,A.E.
