Siva is desperate to post a poem for this month,

Re: Legality Whence?

You make a valid point Siva the law condemns because none can keep it, faith gives hope. In the Christian sense, and I'm pleased you mention it, we are no longer under law, but grace. I think it is better to say: more valid than legal entities in the last s. You need that before 'go with the wind' f...

Two Matches

That’s what we were given. Some placed a pile of wood, lit the two matches and stood back awaiting a blaze as if a miracle was about to happen. Others carefully cut tinder, but if it was damp in any way, failure. The clever ones on a grey wet day hunted recesses: spider’s webs, fluff, dust, wood chi...

I know you have been concerned at your muse lately
I think state tree has been said before but I still like it,
Van Gogh overused imo
Short and sweet, you could add a little more but very good.

Window Into the Mind

After they'd moved overseas Sitske spent time drawing windows, month after month; each pane carefully drawn, one row of three 12 high by 8 wide, split into 4 panes 6 by 4. The lower rank the same as the top, set in rows. ‘Windows, Sitske pronounced emphatically, these are the windows’ ‘What about th...

Re: Iron Ore Miner (1859) -V2

Thanks Billy
There is a slight change in voice as you say after the Sunday stanza.
N is one person and meandering through the past in his mind
or maybe telling a friend, or even justifying his actions
and his fears for the future.

Re: Our Parents

She was an office on a top floor,
and breathtaking views.
Perhaps: 'with breathtaking views'.

Suggest you promote her to full president:

Mom was too busy for us,

Re: Iron Ore Miner (1859) -V2

Thanks Siva, I have attempted to addressed Bob's concerns in S7 and shown progression. It really is about the constant hardships, fear of death and primeval conditions where a man finds comfort in the beauty of a woman's body and help in the most unlikeliest of places and thanks his maker for such a...

Re: Iron Ore Miner (1859)

Point taken Bob, John studying is part of a larger story, shall dispense with it. 1831 refers to the Rebecca riots, problem is explaining vs telling, will have to think. The myriad details should all build up showing N's life and one glorious day in all that, quite wicked but nevertheless enthralling.

Iron Ore Miner (1859) Before Pen y Garn, at Trallwn we slept in barns and watched our children grow large eyes.
