For Amy Winehouse. A Poem by Scott Hastie.

Life a teeming process
That in its constant,
Callous churn
Delivers but
A few brilliant jewels
From a solid weight
Of ossified dreams
And ashen decay;
Without one,
The other simply cannot be.
Such bravery then!
In her all too short
Shining example,
The flawless, fluid grace
I had always looked for
Was suddenly so obvious.
And then, not long after,
The loveliness came
To make my own life’s transit,
From that point on,
A supreme irrelevance also!
Such freedom to shine,
Thus enlightened.
From that point on,
Forever dancing
In a glorious shower
Of faith and beauty realised.
Bluff and expended– maybe!
But timelessly agape,
What exquisite rain…
