Hello Sian,
many thanks for your very flattering comments.
I don't know about you but I am finding writing particularly harder as time goes by.
I write monthly for a living and it seems to drain something out of me, leaving little left for creative work.
When I am inspired it pours out but the waiting is unbearable.

thank you once again and KEEP WRITING

Graham

Hi Sian

Never knew there were so many words begining with 'sw' you have used them so effectively that this aspect of the poem blends in beautifully. Liked the squeaky creations

Hi Sian, thanks for your comments on Tomboy. I believe she definitely emerges stronger from it all. By the way, I thought your Shadow on the Sun was strikingly good, particularly with its flick of the tale at the end

Sian. Thanks very much for your kind words. It was a long time back to that Park poem! But I remembered all the sibilance and what I called the "all-at-once ness". It's a lovely poem. If you enjoy writing you should carry on, you do it well.

Shards of spite and the grey dusty, grim musty silence are more evidence of your sharpening eye. However the use of single word lines twice......
Far
Too
Long

Together with the.......

Simple
Innocent
Laughter

...shows a really powerful emotional compass. I'm always interested in your work Sian. Well done again and keep them going. Graham

Hello Sian
Thanks for your very kind interest. I am something of a reluctant blogger, having no great regard for what I do (not false humility).
I write to express those things that have passed through my mind (many and various), and if others find them of interest or enjoyable, I am both amazed and thrilled, in equal measure.
Steve

Hello Sian HNY to you. Thank you for commenting on Happy New Year. I unfortunately was one of those in last night's clothes. Have just read The Long Fuse. Will comment after a couple more reads. Always necessary with your work. I'm looking for the clever bits that you hide so well. Graham

Hello Sian ;-)Thankyou for your appraisal of The Enigma poem, I thought John had a point, then when I read your comment's I was pleased with the way you interpreted it, as that was the way it was intended to be read.( I guess it's all in the perception ;-) ) So you get 2 Thaumaturgically Charged browny points and a free Tarrot read for liking my poem as is ;-) .TC X

thanks for looking in on my profile. Haven't been on here for a month due to no internet service. This visit is temporary until full service can be resumed. (so to speak) :-)

ps. hope your latest blog isn't because of a bad personal experience. There are some unscrupulous fortune tellers around but they're not all bad.
Great poem.

Hi Sian,

Hope all is well with you - haven't "seen" you around too much lately - but then I haven't been around much myself. I just wanted to say thanks for stopping by and for your generous comment on "Beyond the Equinox." Not a work of any great depth, admittedly, but I'm glad a few folks seemed to like it. Hopefully I might get time to review a few things myself soon!

Best regards,
A.E.

Hi Sian,
Thank you so much for your ...encouragement.. re 'Voices'... Yes there is no one more beautifully formed by love or nature than I to take on the lewd and rude...I was born naked.

However I do have a ...deeper side... possibly not as interesting..But I need to get it out of my system... so I'm compiling a book, collection, whatever they call it theses days, should be ready some day never...
So pleased to hear from u again, wondered where you're bonny chops had gone..

C u Soon

Hi Sian,

I'm a fan of your work. My point about men being done down in poetry wasn't targeted at you specifically ... as you probably realise.

It's just that, as a man and a writer, I sense there is an increasingly feminised culture in publishing and the media generally that makes it quite difficult to be male.

A lot of comedy and drama, as well as poetry, contains the implicit message that men are bad and women are good. If only the reality were so simple.

I'm beginning to feel that the situation has become so bad that it is affecting freedom of expression, which as writers and poets we ought to champion.

No-one raises an eyebrow when a piece of literature attacks a man or shows a man's character to be deeply flawed. Yet if the same is done to a female character, especially if written about by a man, everyone cries "misogynist". There is something very wrong at work here.
