    Hi Sally,
    I chose a poem of yours at random - 1957 -
    “…kohl-eyed,
    black lashed
    Saturday morning spenders”
    ‘Good God’ I thought …were you there? ’
    Straight back to the ‘Riviera’ and ‘Elasona’ coffee bars and the local ‘Plaza’ on Saturday nights.
    Another couple - ‘Aunt Rose’ you say is kid’s stuff - we were all kids at one time and ‘Seagull’ - how often we fail to notice the things we frequently see. Great work.

    Like many others on this site I suspect, I am new to ‘going public’ with my poems and verse. Writing is generally a lonely pursuit and often twinned with a lack of confidence, which means that we are reluctant to share the results of our labours with other people. In the end, the compulsion to communicate thoughts and ideas brings us to sites such as this in the hope that someone ‘out there’ will read and understand what we are struggling to say.
    In my poems and verses I try to input verbal rhythms and speech patterns, and to tell a story or make comments about current events, political topics and day to day happenings in my own life and past. Sometimes these are humorous; sometimes sarcastic; and sometimes slightly poignant and sad …… as in the case of the ‘Oscar Night - Lust to Dust’ a poem highly topical at this moment.
    Your comments, criticism or praise (especially the last) would be very welcome - but hopefully will not alter what I write.
