|Full of symbolism- yes, we all have to face a time in life where we are confronted with what we truely achieved, and the little time we may have left to finish what needs to be done.|

|One fine line after another drifts through THE SANDS OF TIME. Amazing how you make this familiar saying into something so fresh and vibrant. Love the psychological intensity, absorbing imagery, and philosophical muscle of this write.|

|Excellent allegory that has the feel of a mini Pilgrim's Progress, somehow... but that's probably just me. You are a wonderful storyteller, Carmen... must be a legacy of that wonderful Father of yours! :)) Love the central image of the sands of time and the shapeshifting of it all - so subtle yet strong and compelling... like walking the desert in search of the elusive oasis. Beautiful, too. You are a musical poet. And the picture took my breath away... identical to a beach scene at Valdevaqueros, Punta Paloma, Tarifa, Southern Spain in the summer, where the natural dunes hewn by cold Atlantic drifts reach to over 50 feet... proves your point a little, I think. TY - adore this. Kate xx|

|THIS is some fine poetry. You gave this some serious thought and it shows. You presented life as the struggle that it truly is, one step at a time, faltering, failing, winning, then comes the eclipse. Nil. Fantastic. Yup, this one goes in my library.|

|The sands of time truly do often shift quite precariously for many of us, Carmen; and this is truly a powerful piece.|
