my horizon


my beloved one, my only child

you are a tempest in a tiny teapot

you are a breathtaking horizon

you are a force to be reckoned with

by virtue of heroine in the bloodlines

you are cherished memories written


you are infantries of unapologetic love

you are the curiosity of the crow

and the emerald jewel of its fascination


you are the apple of your father’s eye

you are your mother’s lasting masterpiece

you are a wildflower conquering the cliff sides

you are the unassuming beauty of the autumn skies

you are as fierce as you are fervent

like the affection of a lion

like a princess with a pistol

before, now, when, again

everything that ever was, or ever will be

 you are loved


a. duncan, 2018


in dedication to my daughter, my horizon, my sweet Savannah Jean…

      1. Tom I wish you the most wonderful week ahead! I’m a bit swamped at work at the moment and at the same time I’m attempting to help Rob file a complaint about a scam wordpress account so my brain is all over the place. I’m seeing all your amazing and detailed responses to my older work and I am smiling ear to ear like the cheshire cat. I don’t have the occasion to respond to them with the gratitude they deserve but know I will! You are wonderful Tom.

      2. Hope you managed to resolve the scam WordPress issue all okay. A few weeks ago a separate site was reblogging people’s content without their knowledge or permission (we managed to get it shut down through sheer numbers of complaints). Was this a similar problem?

      3. Sort of. It’s those scammy followers who add you no matter how many times you delete them and their pages contain malware! Rob and I have been all but arguing with wordpress on a complaint thread about it and they don’t seem very interested in looking into it or addressing the issue despite it being against their TOS. They’re being very passive aggressive about the whole thing and it’s left a bad taste in my mouth if I’m being honest. Perhaps you have some advice from your experience that might help us light a fire under them? I’ve taken a little break off posting anything because I’m so disgusted with WordPress at the moment. I so appreciate you checking in with me Tom. How are you darling?

      4. Aw no, I know the feeling 😦 Got a few that periodically pop up now and again no matter how many times they get politely blocked (like door-to-door Jehovah’s Witnesses!) 🙂
        When we tackled the other harvesting website Tygpress a while back, a few prominent bloggers spread the word themselves by individual posts & encouraged others to raise awareness through their own followers too. Renard & Fandango wrote two good advice articles on it (links below – might not address the exact problem you & Rob are facing, but hope it helps)

        P.S. I’m doing okay, April 😀 Hope work hasn’t been too hectic for you this week & that my story tomorrow hopefully adds some sparkle to your weekend. x

      5. This is excellent information and I wasn’t aware of the situation with Tygpress or their shitty behavior. So thank you – I’ve been reading over all of this information and it’s going to help me rephrase our approach. I’m so glad to hear you’re well – I can’t wait for the latest installment. Work has actually been an additional stress this week so your gorgeous imagination is going to be both a joy and a relief to me!!! Xo

      6. Glad it was helpful for you both! Quite a few people got together & crowdshared the problem so it snowballed until the relevant people noticed. Luckily a few different people also had legal assistance to add some heft to their complaints too.
        Really thrilled it’ll help brighten your day! 🦊 Had a lot of fun writing it. Hope your weekend’s easier xo
