I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

These poems are works in progress and may be updated without notice. Nevertheless copyright applies to all writings here and all photos (which are either my own or used with permission). Thank you for your comments. I read and appreciate them all, and reply here to specific points that seem to need it — or as I have the leisure. Otherwise I reciprocate by reading and commenting on your blog posts as much as possible.

A note to my email subscribers

I do apologise for my bad habit of posting poems when I think they're ready, and then immediately noticing things that could be improved.

I wonder if you get several versions popping up in your inboxes in quick succession? Probably. All I can say is, prefer the last one.

I am making good resolutions to wait, go away and do something else, and have a fresh look at a new, supposedly finished poem after some hours have passed. That might work. (But there's something about seeing it posted which instantly highlights all the faults!)
