On the wall of the tidal pool a man is standing; staring up at me.
He is trapped, embarrassed; he knows I’ve seen him.
I know that the pebble-dash will be hurting his bare feet.
Between us, on the road, cars drone toward the dockyard.
I dip my head to release him from my gaze, lean to lift my glass.

Startled, a pigeon splatters a white exclamation mark onto the bleached deck.

    Just read through your poetry, and think they are excellent. Want to subscribe to your site to read more. How do I do this? Never mind, it’s at the bottom. I’m away. Have a good day.

      Thanks Loreen, I really enjoy your comments on Rik’s blog, but can’t find your own blog.

    Thanks Cin. For the moment, I’m just going to take a breather. As far as I’m concerned, and I know you will agree, I want to take full advantage of RikScott’s posts on Blogging. I’m just a newcomer, and his venture into this subject couldn’t have come at a better time. Hopefully, I’ll be able to revamp my blog, because I haven’t even got a domain name now. I want to separate the creative work from the analysis, too. Comment on my own work, philosophically. And I want a new name for it.
    So it’s bit by bit. Don’t know when I’ll get set up. But I’m posting some comments under ‘poeticinteraction’ which go to my site, and I’m doing this so I can make use of these, my own, comments, later on my site. I’m learning that much anyway. A bit at a time. Just to get me grounded. But it’s all ‘ad hoc’ – learning as I go.
    P.S. I think we have a pretty good little group here. Perhaps I can come to your blog and offer comments. There is, however, so little time. With my new blog, I’m writing two different stories at a time. One on webook, and another on the blog. It’s great for self editing. Have you tried it?
