By now, you know my friend Scott Hastie. Here is a new poem. I’m sure you will love it, as I do.


Striking isn’t

How the joyous

Always reveal

Something fresh

And glorious

About themselves.

Illusions of vulnerability

Evaporated by pure spirit.

Just as it was that day

You kissed someone.

And for

The very first time

They truly kissed you back.

This then the beauty

Of being alive,

Pared down

To its very essentials.

Its trigger point.
