scotthastie3  Meet my friend and poet, Scott Hastie. Here is his latest poem. Enjoy it and check out Scott’s site: http://www.scotthastie.com/?p=4068

We are all prophets

Of our own existence

Are we not?

And come what may,

Tis always

Such noble ambition

To leave telling traces

Of ourselves

Wherever we can.

Thus do all our lives

Become

An enduring tapestry

Of pointed moments,

Albeit seeded with loss,

The ache of which will pass

Whilst such sweet emotion

Remains.

See how potently

That narrative runs on!

And to guide us on our way,

Amidst the endless sway

Of needs and desire,

Delicate patterns made,

Filigrees of real meaning.

The absolute truth

Of raw emotions

Etched on our heart,

Left behind,

Radiant,

As pathways to tomorrow.

Thanks Scott. I’m sure my readers will love this poem as much as I do. So, everyone, keep reading and, as always, keep the pen moving.
