Thanks, playful.

Although I'm glad my comments allowed you to visualize the poem, there's no need to worry about understanding poetry in general. When Tess died, I didn't understand that at all.

Hi Timmy,
This now makes absolute sense for me . I can re-read the poem and feel as well as hear what you are saying.
I generally don’t post comment on poetry because usually I don’t understand it. That was the case with this poem – what others can so obviously see and appreciate I often find closed and obscure to me. Your explanation of the tragic events behind this poem has opened a window onto your world .
Sorry for your loss.

Regards

playfull

Tess was a student of mine. She was killed in a car/school bus crash the end of February. Good kid. Foolish driver.

Thanks for your comments.

timmy,

There comes a time in a person's Life when life is not something Literary, but very real.

You have captured it.

In a way that brings great comfort....not fear nor dread. But respect.

You always really write about life "between the lines." Which all great writing does.

What a gift you have!


IMR

There is a tiny door
of light by the fence
between the pickets
and the posts
where Tess died

Mind you,
this was not
a sudden event;
it took a lifetime
to evolve

Death does not
have dimensions;
yet, we struggle
to invent words
to measure it
