    From ifyouplease on Lost To Me.

    I understand it in an odd way. Are there places that still speak the same?

      Hi, no not really, since I lost my adored dog Harvey, the magic I always felt in those places seems to have gone too.
      I don’t understand it myself but the inspiration I always found there is there no longer.
      Thank you very much I appreciate your interest. X sue.

    Heartfelt times as I went thought this with my mother. Thoughts are with you. I wrote something similar in 2016 https://ukauthors.com/2016/09/05/step-into-the-light/

        Coo. Good luck with the book. I use Lightning Source – much cheaper and no stock to keep – worth checking out: someone pays you for a book, you pay them, they print 1 or a 1,000 and post them to teh customer!

    From mitch on The Other Side - Chapter 2 - The Storm (Original)

    Good description and dialogue but ‘flicker of rage danced’ in Chapter 1 and a flicker here too – small niggles as is ‘scratchy voice’ otherwise a good read thus far!

    From mitch on Division

    Excellent as always – dark and provoking…. Sometimes he asks the cup of coffee / his wife’s holding / why people like him do not have / vertical eyes – struck a real chord with me for some reason…

      From ifyouplease on A Poem Sleeps

      there were two poems I had written, Weeks (2003) and A September Poem (2005), I decided to keep only the last line of the first poem and the month. June has to do with my father’s death. We, who write poems, unknowingly foretell eerie things. Weeks referred to my father’s job and he was born in February..

    A beautiful heartfelt poem, Alison. Like me, many have been there in that difficult, though sadly, inevitable situation – wishing you well through it all – never easy.

      Thanks Trevor Yes another of life’s challenges most have to face. It needs some tweaks and possibly trimming but because i am away from home and using tiny keyboard of my phone, I am having difficulty with spacing and so i will leave it till i get home.
      I have just started to oil the creative
      wheels again after a long hiatus so thought better to get it down anyway.
      Greetings to you from Nairn in the Scottish Highlands.

        A poignant and excellent poem, Alison. It shows your love and the anguish you feel at the thought of her departure. Be strong.
        In the days when UKA was vibrant and full of enthusiasm it would have received a worthy nib.

    From Gothicman on Britons, lend me your ear

    Sorry Luigi, I’ve kept away from politics for awhile! I think my two medical students were mooning in the Commons tonight! Hahaha! Perhaps they were practicing on the cliffs of Dover for something more substantive!
    What a mess leaving the EU turned out to be? Theresa May should have left David Davis at his post – she really turned out to be no good in situations that require a cool nerve and belief in Britain. I hope Boris takes over and stamps his character on the negotiations – he has self-irony, which is always a good indication of inner strength. Thanks for composing this fine poem in helping to develop further my frustrated efforts to get some idea of what’s going on in our name!
    Best, Trevor

    Looks like the so called ‘Brady Amendment’ (demand EU agree to limited backstop) seems to be the only way forwards (extension to 22 May) other than No Deal with General Election? Extending 2 years + EU elections would be catastrophic for democracy. The plot thickens!

      From ionicus on Britons, lend me your ear

      Hi Trevor. We can’t avoid politics over here: coverage of Brexit and the failure of achieving any resolution is in the media 24/7. Being an Italian citizen who had no say in the matter I am an outsider and not having a vested interest I may offer an opinion which is more objective than a British one. I cannot understand why there has to be a deal to leave before a trade deal can be negotiated. As it is obvious that no deal can be agreed. I say just leave on WTO terms which, despite the scaremongering, offer a lot of scope. As for the notorious ‘backstop’, the Irish Taoiseach has declared that in the event of a no deal Ireland would not have ‘a visible border’ with Northern Ireland. So, what’s the problem? Why insist on it being inserted as a clause? I could go on and on but it wouldn’t get me anywhere. Wishing the Parliamentarians the best of British, I will end my diatribe.
      Oh, by the way, nice hearing from you.
      Best, Luigi.

    we dream the past when we’re awake and sleep throughout the now as I said in the Chosen Dummies

    the eyes may be one of the reasons.

    some sort of optical lagging.

      Yes yes yes! I read and reread the poem. It says nearly everything I wanted to say, but may not be as deftly. I liked Sue’s comments too.
      Consciousness alone can help us wake up! If at all?
