30 Poems for National Poetry Month: Day 21

April 21, 2013

Here is my poem for Day 21:

I want you to feel the way you do
When you’re with me, even when
We’re apart: beautiful, whole, sexy,
Smart, grounded — a rock star.
You should always feel that way,
Because it is who you are
Not just how I see you.
“Bind me as a seal upon your heart,
A sign upon your arm…” writes Solomon.
That seal and sign,
Should not be a “brand,”
But a celebration of you,
Your beauty, your wholeness,
And how full of love you are.

–Scott Edward Anderson

    Scott, I haven’t been able to communicate with you this last week because, unbelievably, there is no cell or Internet service in Cuba for North Americans…. The embargo is inconvenient for us but really hurts the average Cuban. Anyway, reading at least 8-9 of your poems at one sitting tonight was overwhelming. What a feat! Be proud…..such an accomplishment. (think day 21 is among my favorites)!

    Looking forward to our lunch next week!
