  1. Hi, Ylse. Thanks for taking the time to read and like Eric's story. I hope you'll continue to enjoy it.  :)

    Old and New

    Hasn't he changed. In even the short time since he first met Andy, Eric's view of the world has altered for the better. We have a sense he has something to live for now. Thank you for all your comments and support.

    Only for a very short time. . Wearing the shiny while I'm writing? Sound good to me. Mine.

    Blind Justice

    Thanks, dear friend. There's no stopping it until the chant reaches the inevitable conclusion.

    You were, Gary. I'm sorry ... I'm glad it grabbed you nevertheless.

    Blind Justice

    Thanks, Val. It was made plain in YeahWrite's notes that the bourdon would make or break this form. The goal is to have the repeated line's meaning shift back and forwards depending on the rest of the verse.
  7. My latest attempt at a new poetry form, chant, may be found here. I'll interested to hear what you think.  :)

    Soul Music by northie

    Now's the time to see if you've set your story notifications to your satisfaction ... I'm going to be tinkering with the completed Part 1 in preparation for loading Part 2. So, apologies, but it does mean Tony and Geoff will be back in the foreseeable future.

    Blind Justice

    Accused, he stands, the dock, his place What need has he of sight? A wight brought low with crabbed old age What need has he of sight? The charge is false, his conscience clean What need has he of sight? His tale has truth, and right besides What need has he of sight? The lawyer's tongue shall do the deed What need has he of sight? His nose will scent the blight of fear What need has he of sight? Each juryman loves truth's bright sound What need has he of sight? He hates how lies do stink of filth What need has he of sight? The lawyer's words hold tight each man What need has he of sight? So keen and sharp, they work his will What need has he of sight? The judge's scales weigh every fact What need has he of sight? Both heft and light, they fill this side What need has he of sight? Afeared, the man lets loose his tongue What need has he of sight? His plight creeps out in sobs and gulps What need has he of sight? The lawyer's voice sounds strong and true What need has he of sight? Such might prevails afore too long What need has he of sight? Each juryman now knows his mind What need has he of sight? The fight is done, the victory clear What need has he of sight? The judge heard all, his course is plain What need has he of sight? Ere night has past, a man will hang What need has he of sight? Condemned, the man hears naught but pain What need has he of sight? The rope's full bite will end his life What need has he of sight? Justina speaks, each man gives ear What need has he of sight? Her sword shall smite what he abhors What need has he of sight?

    Four Varied Skyscrapers

    Number 2 made me grin. It's always when you have to write something that your vocabulary melts away. Words do indeed hide in shrubs. 😛 3 I found a magical way of describing us writers, and yes, we do leave ourselves wide open, like the windows. Thank you for introducing me to this form.

    Age and Unborn

    Once I'd gathered what Unborn was about, it made me smile. Words which fail to gel into anything useful, never mind creative? I know them well. Gary's comment about being 'creeped out 'at the start is entirely apt. Nobody who loves life will also love death. The Victorian black-ness that surrounds death and grief is finally fading away, I think. Not a moment too soon.
  13. @Aviana Welcome back! And thanks for the gift.
  14. 🍾 Happy birthday! I hope you've had a great day.  I've only just noticed ...  :)
