Your iconic 'eye' is a master stroke. It could be male or female. I'm still uncertain whether it is famed by fabric or long leaves; the texture suggests 'plant' wrapped about a human face. Either way, the picture is mind-startling. I was glad to see it again.
I remember the famous photo of the green-eyed girl from Afghanistan, Time magazine cover, years ago.

thanks so much for your kind comments on 'Arroyo' David - really pleased you liked it. I'm trying to concentrate a bit more on form and style following the WW1 stuff - so hopefully it should take me in some interesting directions :-) hope you are well and lining up a great Christmas - take care mate - Ian

Thanks for the kind feedback on 'snipers' david - I'm in catch up mode as usual - so aplogies for the slow response - hopefully will get back into general circulation once the CD gets out - I forget how time consuming graphic design can be :-) thanks as always

Bridport! we always head to the south coast once a year - and it's usually Dorset/Devon/Cornwall side - we always seem to get reasonable weather - which is good as we do a lot of walking. I suppose if you go anywhere in this country in February you're likely to get a lot of rain - so shouldn't hold that gainst Dorset :-) Bristol - the centre of things? errrr shurely shum mishtake here ;-)

thanks for the comment on 'breathing in the dusk' David - I thought it was simple but effective :-) I'm well thank you - hopefully you are too - and looking forward to those balmy south coast summers :-) I'm down there in June for a week - dorset :-) :-)

Your line breaks are not clumsy, and I did ask about only one situation (which still works well as written.) I really look forward to catching up on your work; my laptop is finally cooperative.

Thank you! I absolutely like that some expressions got your attention! I know my words are simple because English is not my mother language but I know that my thoughts are complicated enough! Thank you for understanding what I wanted to say! Will keep writting if you keep reading!

Thank you for passing by my humble profile! Please read my 'Death Wish' on the blogs wall! will be highly appreciated to hear your comments on it!

thanks for the comments on 'all that is left' David - pleased that you liked it - he was a hero, of sorts, for me.
also pleased you liked the videos - I enjoyed the wakefield piece - it's special performing something on the streets where you were born (not literally - ha)and to your 'neighbours' - I also enjoyed the 'with backing' tracks - the dormant rock star in me coming out at long last :-)

thanks again David - yes Soundcloud is a good way for me to get some of the music tracks I've done on the new CD out as 'samplers', I've picked the more musical ones - there's a fair chunk of stuff on the CD that's more poetry based - with the music backings more 'ambient'. There's a corker coming up later this week once I've uploaded it - really spooky :-)
also - if you fancy a 'butcher's' at the old dog performing live - there's quite a few postings on youtube - some using backing tracks : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCytAVhsFTTdxE2LAKYV2ZoA
thanks once again for your kind and supportive comments
Wed 26th Feb 2014 18:24
thanks for the comment on 'Anytown' David and apologies for the tardiness of my reply - I've not been spending enough time on WOL recently and I've got behind with both my thank-you's and my readings of other folks work - something I intend to remedy as we head in to March :-) will be back in touch I'm sure once I catch up on my reading

David, glad you liked 'Surbiton Lagoon'. Your comment sent me to look at your work, and I was very interested and impressed. I particularly liked 'The Climb', 'Birdbath', and 'The Diving Board', which I felt was almost more of a short story than a poem. Although a long, narrative poem is ok, of course - see Coleridge! You write about nature in a mysterious, intriguing way at times. The photos are excellent, too. All the best, Greg

A belated thanks for your comment on the play
I was trying to get rid of the `explanational` stuff and get down to the bare bones of the thing and give the actors something to play with...It`s much harder when trying to bring in sub plots.

Hi David THanks for comment on the Clouds poem. I just went where it took me. I was brought up as a Catholic and the idea of heaven. I've now got three MUslim grandchildren. I don't believe in heaven any more so it might just be saying that heaven is what you want it to be, possibly!

thanks for your kind comments regarding the winterfylleth poem David - sorry i'm a bit late in responding - I'm getting a bit behind due to other commitments at the moment - so in catch up mode with the thank you's - anyway, very kind of you - cheers
Thu 10th Oct 2013 18:03
Hi David Glad you liked 'Thales' which is maybe a bit on the obscurish side! Yes, the 'verticals' are literally just anything upright which a fire can burn down.
Fri 12th Jul 2013 23:41
thanks for the positive and supportive comments on my last 3 efforts David - as always, they are much appreciated. You've been a bit quiet on the blog front recently, getting out too much rather than slaving over a hot laptop eh :-)

I imagined it was someone who took their own life - and the 'from a high window' became that much more poignant because it had that double meaning. I think the title is perfect for that reason.

thanks for your comments on 'the snowspider' David - the location is very real (deep in the forests of Bannf in British Columbia, Canada) althought the snow spider is........less so!
Mon 22nd Apr 2013 19:16
thanks for the recent comment David - I'm in catch-up mode and notice you've posted a recent blog - so will have a read shortly
Mon 25th Feb 2013 20:41

Mon 25th Feb 2013 12:25

Sun 10th Feb 2013 11:47
many thanks for your kind comments. I've had a quick look through the rest of your blogs and am liking what i read. in particularly i enjoyed maria en la roca and thought the alternate title was totally appropriate to the piece.

Thanks for your comment on Agapanthus, David. I see you are a man of the west, so maybe you know Scilly?
Fri 8th Feb 2013 18:47

Hi David. Thanks for your comments on Christine. I am working on the song version. It will be on my profile page as soon as it is recorded. Take care, Tony.
Wed 6th Feb 2013 22:13
Thanks for taking a look at my poetry David - and welcome to WOL!
I very much enjoyed your profile poem. It seems like the poem of a much older person though - you look too young to be so battle worn - I'm hoping that means you've lived life to the full :) Take care for now. x

'I am also developing a keen interest in photography, as I am fascinated by the attention to detail it involves, such as the emphasis on aspects such as light and shade'
your poetry presents you well in this aspect of your self observation David - welcome to WOL :-)
