The Storyteller

THE STORYTELLER

 

 

 

Funny stories I long to share with new friends have to be put aside while the core of this entity is built.  Mutual memory is the siding on a house framed in integrity.  Treading together through the past, we strengthen each other’s perception; it’s the only support that can be offered without time travel.  We take hands, then link arms, wander happily toward the future having the keys to history jangling in our fists; we can return whenever prudent or necessary.  We forge a fresh path and hope for a pleasant journey; between us we figure we have slain all the dragons.

 

 

Invest in idealism.

I remember so long ago

when I would come and sit and listen;

soak in the poets and the Consort,

sop it all into the sponge that listened and sat.

 

I did not know exactly what they were doing

and I didn’t know why I was there,

but I went and had a soak.

 

Now so many years hence

I am the writer I never knew

and I know just what they do ,

because I do it too!
