Introduction

All the 3:15 poems for 2008 were written in Santa Barbara except where noted otherwise.

This labor of love is a sweet romance, and an invitation to see what I conjure in the dark through patience, trust and acceptance in empty spaces. What shows up has its say, and I do my best to allow it full freedom. In the darkness there is a sensuality of forms less defined, more intuited. This mood affects the poetry. Interrupted sleep creates a healthy discomfort that opens creative doorways. In Santa Barbara I slept alone in my meditation room on a futon on the floor with a window cracked open most nights. There was a sense of freedom in this, and a breath from the air outside that I hope affected the writing. I encourage anyone who craves the chance for a reason to be creating at 3:15 in the summer to indulge this desire. It has added a new and rich dimension to my experience of being on this planet. It anchors me with a sense of balance in the dark and mysterious that compliments life during the light hours.

Linda Saccoccio is also a visual artist.
