Absolutely beautiful. The word "rippling" paints this image so perfectly in my mind. I'm so glad to be back from my little break...and reading your poetry is one of the reasons, Bill! :)

I admire the way you make the word "rippling" evoque the water, whithout naming it. A powerful image - stays with me... !

I love your comment, Dianne.

Kristin, great to hear from you.

Juliet, that means a lot, coming from you.

And peace to you, Marcel.

John, Karol, Gillena, my thanks.

That's what I was hoping for, Monika.

"a poor thing but mine own," Nicole.

And I wish for it for you, Gautami.

You're more than welcome, Kristin. You're a daymaker yourself.

Thanks, Doug. That was the intent.
