|You have hit on a truism so perfectly, freedom is on the inside. So well penned and compelling.|
|Reviewed by Elizabeth Russo
|Sometimes there is no 'place' for us to go to feel free when we are in pain or troubled; it is within ourselves...somewhere....but it sure does take time to find. Beautiful write Karen! ~Hugs, Elizabeth|

|Excellent imagery and visuals in this poem. You took me to those places. What a nice way to spend some time and get smoe R&R.
I think feeling free can be a state of mind and if ones goes to that place and lingers a while , it can make the day a little brighter....M ( Glad you got away from the misquitoes tho )

|This was a difficult poem for me to read, from personal 'stuff' that is going on. "No place to be free ..." speaks to me in so many ways. Still ... I focus on the beauty around me - and your imagery brings a lift to my spirit. Thank you.
God bless you,

|Beautiful setting as is ever in your writing, Karen, and with such elegant, relevant detail; the last and only freedom we truly have is inside our heads...and pray 'they' never find a way to take that from us.
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|This is such an honest and searching voice, Karen. You have included so many idylls and beautiful observations that it makes your haunting refrain even more starkly contrasted as we travel through the poem. And we still are lacking a conclusion by the end - highlighting indeed that freedom is an inner state of being rather than an external condition or circumstance. Very profound and provocative yet delicate work. Kate xx|
|Reviewed by Christine Tsen
|What a lovely poem to heed. Pain rings sharply in this voice, as she searches for that rare gift of true serenity. Oh, I hope she finds it!

|As long as we can dream Karen and imagine the lovely memories of places and times like this we can always be free...loved this one and brought a lot of memories and rich memories to my own mind of better times.
|Reviewed by George Carroll
|Inwardly we are never free though outwardly the world looks like the Garden of Eden as you have painted it in this marvelous poetic verse. When we bring God into the equation we will have a true picture and find the freedom we are searching for.|
