It might be because I lost somebody today but all of your poems remind me of death. That's not an insult though. They do so in a quite beautiful fashion.

I think it's more fitting to say this one reminds me of life, rather than death, since one can in fact use the words as synonyms because they are essentially the same in the end. One day we all lay down to the wind. This is beautiful, and like the last I read, very simplistic.

All the words seemed right.

Very strong words in the short poem. Better to bend then be ran over. A outstanding poem.

I too can see the metaphors within this poem and it's simple yet effective. I have to tell you when I looked at the picture fast I thought it was a balding head. The metaphors were just as present. Ha Ha. Good poem.

There are a number of very strong metaphors wrapped in this nugget of gold. Well done.

This one is the most curious. It's brief but honestly, I think I can relate. I really like this one, fantastic job. =)
