Thanks, Craig. Not sure I agree though. I find it far easier to write rhyming poetry/sonnets etc than I do free verse. They actually come far more naturally to me. But I enjoy giving any style a go. Wherever the mood takes me.
Ben.. First I'd like to apologise for missing this... It's an amazing write and I feel you're getting so much more confident at these 'prose' and seeing you throw a little rhyme here and there did make me chuckle because I thought out loud in a cilla black voice.. "that's our Ben" lol
Take care x
Loved the ending to this :) and your use of imagery. How you always bring in nature to your poems.. I liked the expression " the scent of jasmine soaks the air around us " and the " laughing leaves" .....
