  3. That's a word I haven't heard before, had to look up the definition. I think this could lead to a good suspenseful short story.

  4. Powerful and sharp, with a mystery that adds to that in the photo. Strange, though, the first two times I read it, my bad eyes saw "falls" instead of "fails" and thought how clever it was to tie into the rain. "Fails" makes more sense, but "falls" would work, too. Just saying.

  14. A very ominous and portentous Magpie. Amazing how much meaning we can condense into a haiku! Lovely take on this Magpie.
