  1. Dee, beautiful work the language and vision your words invoke – have you been to where you speak? Ribbons of moonlight, the shift from crabs shell to shell – but then the pines – I’m moving from a sea shore to my own northern woods. And then the chariot of hours – I’m plunged back to my studies of women, their history, the book of hours that were often commissioned for wealthy women – and ultimate gift from one to the other – or are we talking more of a female version of of a chariot ride in the night – the moon, attributted to women, rather than the sun a calmness rather than the disasterous ride of…was it Apollo? – or am I thinking too much? 🙂

    • Hi Sandra, no you are not thinking too much! I love the way you apply laser beam focus on the different images of this poem — I appreciate your fresh and delightful reflections. Yes I have been to the places I speak of, to some, wherein I was totally immersed, and other places in passing, until the memory of the place recreated itself in a more compelling way. This poem certainly puts on a unique life of its own as you read it. When I wrote this piece, the chariot to my mind was “gender-free”, a vehicle for transcending the mundane and restless affairs of the world, a calmness wrought by silence, in the knowing that the passing of the nighttime hours always brings daylight, in the very midst of the passing of the seasons. Thank you so much for your wonderful thoughts on this poem, Sandra! 🙂

  2. Absolutely beautiful, Dee. I read these lines and am reminded of the wonderous gift of breath! I am in awe, and blessed by your understanding. ~ Love always, Bobbie

    • Dear Bobbie, yes, I am of the same mind and heart as you, that it is a blessed privilege to be alive, to feel and to know at the same time, to partake of the miracles that embrace us at every moment of our breathing. Thank you so much for your kindness and your friendship. Love, Dee
