Hi Souchong,

This is a thoughtful piece, coming around Remembrance Day as it does. The last line is very moving. I take it that, if you were a newsreader, you wouldn't be wearing the red poppy? ;)

Hope to see more of your work.

This is very poignant and beautifully written. I love the significance of the white poppies.

You can thank me now I've responded - poor old Smudger!

Hi Souchong. 'I have nothing to say' just says it all, really..... What ever can one say?

Lovely, thought-provoking.

Great stuff. And perfect - though I'd be tempted to put a semi-colon at the end of the second line. Just a thought!
