For Some--By Scott Thomas Outlar--United States

For Some

For some there is love
like a fire
through the night…burning unquenchable

For some the love is a flood
extinguishing…everything…
always

For some it is simple…
For some it is pure…
For some it is right…
For some it is even holy...

Scott Thomas Outlar spends the hours flowing and fluxing with the ever changing currents of the Tao River while laughing at and/or weeping over life's existential nature. Links to his chapbook and other published work can be found at 17numa.wordpress.com.

  2. Dear Scott,

    It is so good to see you have one comment on your timeless poem. In it's simplicity it reaches out to share so much about love...maybe not always simple but surely right and holy in its true essence. Welcome to Whispers! Please let me know if you have any question.

    Blessings,
    Karen
