Love's Long Journey is a 2005 made-for-television Christian drama film based on a series of books by Janette Oke. It was directed by Michael Landon Jr. and was originally aired on Hallmark Channel on December 3, 2005.
The Middle Passage was the stage of the triangular trade in which millions of Africans were forcibly transported to the New World as part of the Atlantic slave trade. Ships departed Europe for African markets with manufactured goods, which were traded for purchased or kidnapped Africans, who were transported across the Atlantic as slaves; the slaves were then sold or traded for raw materials, which would be transported back to Europe to complete the voyage
Middle Passage: voyage through death to life upon these shores. The classic epic premise of a quest-journey is thus established, but in terms that are uniquely Hayden's. He uses "death" in a literal sense to counterpoint ironically the figurative use of "life. Deep in the festering hold thy father lies, the corpse of mercy rots with him, rats eat love's rotten gelid eyes. In this passage the poet also decries the rotting bodies of his ancestors interred in the holds of slave ships. The contrast of "rotten" with what ought to be living thoughts-"mercy" an "love"-is reminiscent of yet another precedent set by Eliot in "The Wasteland," especially in "Burial of the Dead.
This time I choose a topic-love-less grim if equally compelling. And like death, love seems to be something most poets know little about; for evidence, see their biographies. The poems I have chosen this time cover the full spectrum of responses to love, from joy to anguish, and sometimes a mixture of both. As befits the topic this time, the list is a bit heavy on Romantics and light on those rational Enlightenment types.

We love them still but must be true to ourselves. Ginny Fletcher (1/21/2006 11:38:00 PM). Journey is the truth offered in life's middle. We must go - alone - to the dark house of our fear, returning again and again until we see what we must do. Or so it seems. Passing houses warm and busy I wonder if only fools are required this pentence. Or if it is a choice, can the passage be as natural and effortless as breathing.
