Alive Again! (Revised)


Alive Again! (Revised)
Tiaan is back, everything intact after a raging rave and many
mistakes – the taxi was late, friends denied entry to a perfect
place, well, it seemed perfect at the time, girls turned away –
the boys hunted in packs – and now he’s back, went down to

the beach with me like Nici yesterday, but with Tiaan it turned
into a feast of witty remarks and commentary, he froze while I
jumped about in surf - conquering a few big wave-breaks over
me – felt like a ride on a steam train right into the bubbles

Then he played beach ball with a friend Nici made, the happy
noise of the boys changing our quiet place into a party night –
I’m so happy, Tiaan is back, all had to wait until now – this is
when it is happening for me, I’m alive again!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
