New poem – We are all prophets…

IMG_8084

 

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.

A touching review of ‘Threads’ by Deborah Hodge

Sex Image

Oh, that mankind would love and finally understand each other…

 

This book is a true masterpiece.

Scott pours over every letter and syllable, breathing in their meaning conveying the essence of time itself.

What strikes me about his work, is that if humanity lived in tune with their souls as this, we would have an end to war, hunger poverty and distress. Mankind would love and finally understand each other.

The contents of this book are timeless and here is a significant wordsmith of the 21st century.

I liken his spirit whispering to the sweet essence of Toni Morrison and the pieces are steeped in culture, both ancient and modern.

Life stood still for a while whilst I read this. Threads brings together the essence of our souls and at last gives meaning. I cannot recommend this enough.

Yesterday, we reached the milestone of one million visits to scotthastie.com and are now having a little cyber party to celebrate…

So thanks to everyone all round the world for your support and heartfelt responses to my work.

Believe me, this is much appreciated and highly valued too… You really do power me on to try and reach higher in what I do, which altogether makes me feel very blessed.

New Poem – To live a little…

IMG_8110

 

To live a little

You have to die a little,

So says the angel’s

Enigmatic smile.

 

Never was the need

For any anvil of angst

Upon which

To crack open

The coded chronicles

Of such a pointed

Lifetime dilemma.

 

Till then, limited

By such dominant

Conviction

That fears the end so.

 

And such

Are all our hopes,

Freer to flower

Brighter still

When no longer clad thus.

 

Every true passion

Shared since

Speaking so clearly to this,

The resolute onward journey

Of our soul.

New Poem – A sheen…

New Poem – A sheen…

IMG_8313

 

A sheen, a glow,

A charisma of sorts.

 

All we’ve come to know,

To touch the essence of,

Leaving behind a memory,

A presence of its own.

Energies

That eventually settle,

Coming to rest somehow

In the very fabric

Of who we are.

 

I see this so clearly

In the eyes of others.

 

Every moment

That has gone before

Bringing us here,

My friend.

 

And yet with so much

Still left to absorb.

 

Joy and pain

Spread so evenly

Along time’s heavy arch.

 

New Poem – See how…

New Poem – See how…

IMG_8140_2

See how

We find ourselves

On the very cusp

Of learning

How it’s the experience

Of just being here,

Joyfully in the moment,

That dissolves

Any disconnect.

 

As we meld together,

Again and again,

In our own self-made

Shafts of sunlight

That can so easily

Survive succumbing

To any melancholy

Along the way.

 

And with

The very best

Of intentions too.

At least, in our hearts,

Having been this once

To heaven!

 

How you bless me still…

 

For what is it

We’ll ever leave

Behind us in the end?

 

If it is not the best

Of ourselves

In each other.
