|What strikes home for me are these words: "...pretty though it may be, quickly becoming/one's liability." This poem holds enormous credibility. ~~ Diana|

|For some reason a Hendrix song came into my mind when I read this poem on the theme of transience. I suppose no-one has come up with a better analogy than the sand castle. I like the little nod to John Muir's famous saying about footprints.|

|On any given Sunday, the shifting sands of football mesmerize the masses. I could give a flying***! ;-)
Your poem, on the other hand, is sound advice for those who build houses of their lives without considering the nature of their environment.

|i really like what Roger said here. This is wonderful poetry|
|Reviewed by Roger Wayne Eberle
|I enjoy the verbal dexterity with which you bombard your reader in an active passage through your poem, especially in this case where your subject is at once so static and impermanent... oh, the sophistry that goes into firming up so shaky a foundation as that house built of sand... yet all it takes is a shift in perspective to buttress bastions of faith and formulate a far firmer foundation... I also like the way you leave us with the internal ... it has to be an inner transformation, doesn't it? I agree wholeheartedly with Christine's concise comment below.
To the strength of a stable core...

life, death, hunger, and taxes...all we can do is fortify all
we try to achieve around us and within us and then have a back
up plan :)
wonderful write Vivian

|I like the work. I was particularly struck by the thought of a thing of pleasure so easily becoming a liability. Our foundations are the key, indeed. Be well, Kathy|
