This prayer book is arranged around the liturgical hours of the day - matin, lauds, prime, terce, sext, nones, vespers and compline - and contains three prayers for each hour of the day. The prayers combine both love poetry and spiritual poetry; a prayer of the heart.

Using the threads of the liturgical hours of the day-matins, prime, lauds, etc.-Mosby (Private Altars, LJ 12/94) has woven a strikingly beautiful tapestry of lyrical poems. Her imagistic poem-prayers integrate the sensuality of the physical world with the transcendence of the spiritual world. Mosby's Prime petition, for example, probes the nature of sights: "Hone my gaze/ to the riches/ of detail-/ slight as the fur/ on a bee's belly/ or the veins, thin as breath,/ lining a forgotten iris/ translucent as a wing-/ rewards/ the hasty eye/ and anxious heart/ do not recognize." Lovingly and hauntingly crafted, Mosby's spiritual lyrics evoke the power and mystery of divine love. A worthy addition to all collections.
