    The firmament above, the Southern Cross
    wrapped up in my infancy, fifty miles to
    Pukeoware's undulating hills, the merest mention
    of macrocarpa and I am transported back
    when all was transparently still, comfortable,
    the smooth feel of warm eggs nestled amongst hay
    and feathers, the slow walk through three fields
    filled with mushrooms and bulls, forever chasing
    my shadows, laughing as each magpie eyed
    the steel of my buckle, a stick in hand my only defence,
    that creek where I would spend all afternoon fishing for eels.
    Blood, all life attracts to this smell. Earth, the rain floods
    each dip and cranny. Forget-me-nots, freed of the warmth
    of compost, to live and die, to bloom and repeat this cycle
    when I am gone.

      This 'un feels different to your usual. It still has that meditative quality which is endlessly compelling, but there's more specificity to it (I love that word. (Is it a word?!))

    Ok, just read the comment above (below?) and yes, I'm repeating. Yes. I see that.

    Right -- your opening clause. Mmmmmmmmmm. You with me? It's, oh man I can't think of the word, it's bizarre? Hard to understand in an explicit sense but something which makes a person's bones respond? I think that's what I mean -- there's something about it which can't be placed, but man, it's glorious.

    Ok, really right now. You've been around here too long to want a babble of compliments from me. So I'll shut up. Ok.

      I like this in a sense that it gives a lot of imagery but makes it a fresh experience "bulls and mushrooms" is the line that stands out the most for some reason. Other than that this seems to steer into a different direction style-wise compared to your usual style.

    3. How did it make you feel?
    4. Why did it make you feel that way?
    5. Which parts?
    6. What distracted from the piece?
    7. What was unclear?
    8. What does it remind you of?
    9. How could it be improved?
    10. What would you have done differently?
    11. What was your interpretation of it?
    12. Does it feel original?


    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
