Hi folks,

I've got a new poem up in Amethyst Review: https://amethystmagazine.org/2024/02/03 ... ne-isbell/
I think I posted this one on PAT - if so, thank you all!

Cheers,
John

Well done again John. The skyscape is one of the delights in life.

Thanks, Phil! When I was younger, I used to find Dutch landscapes dull. Now I appreciate the cloudy skies they love to paint. Hard to capture on canvas though.

I was pretty sure I'd posted this poem here first!!

Cheers,
John

That's a gorgeous poem, John. You certainly have the knack for writing beautifully. I am putting that in my file of other authors' beautiful poetry.

Is "stamping grounds" another way of saying "stomping grounds"?

Thank you, John. The contrived conversation on that site is a little hard to swallow, but I get the point.

Yes, the main thing seems to be that the one is slightly older but both are OK, like who and whom.

There are a lot of these Q & A sites online.

Cheers,
