This lends itself a certain amount of sympathy, Rachael: like a moment in history lost forever. I like it!
Thanks, Chris. A little more work needed on the semantics perhaps… 😉
I think that the sentiment is all there, Rachael, which, after all, is surely the point.
🙂 I suppose so, Chris. I was looking at some of Ted Hughes’ workbooks and found it interesting how much reworking he did before he was ‘happy’ with the piece. I rarely do that. Which camp do you belong to?
I generally edit whilst I write, then make the odd change when I type. I think that one tends to ‘feel’ when a piece is right, and also, on occasions when I have reworked poems, I have found that they often lose what was intended. So, in short, I’m with you here.
All the best. Chris
Eerily portentous, and then boom! Between the image and your crafty words, I felt detached at first and then a strong visceral reaction to the explosion. Impressive, as always, how you deftly evoke so much in so little space. Xxo, Your Admirer on the Marsh
Ha! I don’t think it fulfils all the criteria for a haiku but what the hell 🙂
