This works really well. I like the reliance on plain language & the repetition of the motif of bones as a symbol of mortality. The poem seems to anticipate an imminent death & yet the tone is resolutely calm & positive. Thank you for this.
Dick, thank you for your wonderful interpretation. You have discovered exactly what I intended for this poem. I'm pleased this spoke to you so well and clearly.
We are all heading for that inevitable "dust to dust", but it is the journey that counts!! Love this Christine!!
Just walk aheadand every footstep counts.Just move forwardand every footprint counts.Those are the magical domain of life.
