  1. Wendy,

    I was so caught up in the physical scene, the ending really
    knocked my socks off. How skillfully you led up to that final
    moment and how gently. So Eastern in its atmosphere. You
    aced it again!

  2. Hi Sarah

    New places built on old grounds, whether tribal or royal palaces/courtyards fascinate me! I believe a place has a spirit from another time and world that in certain circumstances lives on. And we as part of the living when me move in are sometimes haunted by that person, dream, or experience that came centuries or years before. Such as in this scene where the modern woman is haunted by the ghost of a royal lady of the court, a poet who passed before she could finish her lament, and that was a need that still needed to be fulfilled. The speaker becomes absorbed by this past woman’s need, loneliness and desire to finish the unfinished. Sometimes emotions and unfilled dreams transcend time. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and as always, I so deeply appreciate them!!

    Take care
    Wendy
