  1. P.J. (“huckleberry friend”):

    Because “his life force resides in writing,” you reach my life force as I “reside” in quarantine. This poem came to me at just the Right God-Given Time while I am in quarantine, when only there is a balcony I can step onto and forward and observe (actually, I don’t have a balcony at my residence, but you get my drift!😉). But, SERIOUSLY, this poem is breathtaking. I want to write about the last line that stayed with me: “The Preamble to my moment of reckoning.” It stayed with me because you capitalized “Preamble.” This means for me there is something HUGE here, something spiritual here.

    What is our Introduction? What is our “moment of reckoning?” I know I’ve used this Bible verse before, but it seems to fit here (and I always use the KJV translation here because of, you guessed it, Ingmar Bergman):

    “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. And now abideth faith, hope, charity (LOVE), these three; but the greatest of these is charity (LOVE)” – 1 Corinthians 13:12-13

    If I am to understand this Bible Verse, and I realize I understand so little, our Preamble/Introduction/”moment of reckoning” cannot be fully known “for now we see through a glass, darkly.” We see only “in part.” We are NOT known in FULL. “But then, “face to Face (yes, second “face” is capitalized for a Reason), the glass will be clear and NOT darkly, we will know in FULL and NOT “in part,” and we will be known in FULL and NOT “in part.” Until this “face to Face,” what are we left with? Yes, mystery! I may have already made mention to you of this before, but I love in the film, SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, how all the characters are losing their heads and when cornered with a hopeful answer, the reply is always the same: ‘I don’t know….it’s a mystery!” I try to live from this reply in my day-to-day comings and goings. If I don’t, I’ll think I know everything clear and in FULL when it is not possible until “face to Face.” BUT, that said, we can LOVE clearly and in FULL, as this is the “greatest of these.”

    Your poetry astounds!

    “For the pain of conclusion,
    of bones breaking,
    is inevitable.”

    If that doesn’t say it all right there, I don’t know what would! “Inevitable” and, yes, “I don’t know….it’s a mystery!”

    Love and blessings always, “huckleberry friend,”
    Timothy (Comrade T)
