What does it matter
Whether it is day or night
The sun rises East
The moon is always female
Father time waits for no man

I have been on this site, but then again not, for a lot of time. Neglect, which is mostly my fault, but partly because I simply forgot it, caused my absence. You commented on one of my poems which I posted several years ago. I saw that comment so I thought I had better return the favor although you probably forgot about me quite a while ago. Thank you for the review anyway.

I was just looking at your poem. The concept of time in the traditional sense is a straight line. Refreshing to see it treated in what is probably the more proper impression, which is only in chunks and events and not an hour by hour account. The more ancient and probably more legitimate view, at least in the personal sense is as a series of events or episodic turnings of time. Of course the moon is female in contrast to the male which was viewed as a male entity by all the ancient religious and cultural references. Personally I think the ancients associated the idea of a female moon because of womens connection through their bodies, such as the mensrual cycle. This is a very beautiful and thoughtful piece Carol. I enjoyed. The only difference I would have is the characterization of time as not waiting for us. If we can rid ourselves of the concept of consecutive events delineating one from another, then we could truly not need time in the sense of a watch. We could stand outside of it.

Red Bear, this is a succinct as well as insightful poem ...
With a few enlightened words, you paint the universe as it turns, the moon, has penetrated your heart deeply, and we are richly rewarded by it. Hugs!

Father Time, indeed, waits for no man, but he will wait indefinately for Lady Moon, yes? Some things never change...Stoic and solid acceptance of what is. Interesting. Thank you. Be well, Kathy

ps: the old man in the moon
is there because she's female - trust
an old man to be where he might have a chance

you are right - it matters not

The ebb and flow of light and dark, is evident in your passionate speak. Words of ephemeral stirrings. Gossamer wings fluttering in the night, while reading this a thousand luna moths took flight.

What about that old man in the moon? Heehee I think the moon is transgender, Carolyn . . . Heehee - again
Reviewed by Ronald Hull
Interesting concepts. I'm not sure why the moon is always female?
