  1. I found myself staring at the surface of the water looking for what was hidden, a real case of where the photo and the poem together have added power.

  4. Loved the first: found myself hoping that the troubled thoughts will drown.
    Also loved the second, but winced at its accuracy.

  5. Love the tranquillity, but who's hiding in the woods, I hope it's not those redundant woodworkers!

  7. Wonderful layers of thought in the first one.

    The second one speaks the truth of what is happening to craftsmen in this world of big box stores.

    Well done, write on!
