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 Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
