    Nominated right off the bat Larry *raises two fingers of Jamesons*

    It's funny I don't remember reading a nature piece from you before, I mean I know you've written them I jist don't think I've ever got around to reading them. Your structure and rhythm as usual are spot on amd I love your word choice and "voice" in this write....forgive me for not breaking it down but the Jamesons is a wicked mistress!!

    Larry, loved this! The visual of this person walking into this lake to end things and suddenly a trout swims by, life! It's amazing how life can startle you into actually living. So well done-

    Larry,

    A wonderfully rich and detailed write that put me in the woods and had me unsticking mud from my boots!
    I think Brenda hit the nail on the head with her comment.

    Excellent poem.

    Congratulations, Larry. There's nothing quite like nature to lift a person's day.

    It's interesting that when I wrote the line about Bob Marley I felt uncomfortable & it was the very line the judges decried. I thank them both for their candor & urge to improve.
