    Read all of them- absolutely impossible for me to pick a favourite, all your work is mature and well-meaning, a pleasure to read.
    'Holocaust' struck me particularly- I know you cant have experienced it, but those three lines summed up the loss so well it is hard to believe you dont 'hail from' 1940s Poland.

    Asolutely beautiful work, keep it up.

With goose bumps all around,
No rush to the house to get warm
Beneath wool blankets pulled high.

The pond where the ducks swim
Is deserted at night.
A feeling of something lost
Strikes me, guilt of things undone.
The streetlights give a faint glow
To the nocturnal ...
