Second Time Around

This was originally posted on October 2, 2014. It’s a poem I wrote in 1979, and sometimes once is not enough.


Thirst a little

That you may appreciate water

Hunger more

That you may enjoy the feast

Suffer some

That you may earn tranquility

Die a little

That you may hunger for life

Love abundantly

That you may know you’re alive.
