Hi everyone,

Here is another touching poem by my friend Scott Hastie.

Passing,

So often fruitlessly,

Through all the doors

To desire in life,

Far finer, faraway prizes

Twist and tease still,

Like runaway kites

Caught up

In a storm of being

That only more mindfulness

Can becalm.

 

Oh, for an end

To such struggles.

And with kind devotion

Comes just that.

 

An embrace

Of perfect peace

That never fails

To usher in

Its own mysteriously

Unforeseen reward.

 

Blanket upon blanket

Of selflessness,

Nestled now securely

In the glowing casket

Of your soul.

Where, deep therein forever,

Lies the warmest

And truest of dividends.

 

The lingering presence

Of love

Beneath the fragile,

Needy contours of us all.
