It’s All About The Story

It’s All About The Story …


As sun’s glow descends, traversing horizon’s grasp

flowing beyond edges combined, bringing eternal colors deeply into play

at darkness’ entreat hands of light caress those of darkness

playing one single trumpet of submission to nighttime’s peace


Paths so slowly trod by footsteps are caught up in freeing somber

where their owner glides through a calling mist of darkness

One long lost soul born in magnificence, returned to passive plurality

is brought to elusive joy in an aged mind

taught of life caught by passion

where glorious words play in wonderful cadence


As night’s hands join together in sweet caress over darkening skies

celestial sparks twinkle and blink, possessing their corners of the heavens,

this sweetly wizened guide of the night’s wares

passes through an ancient wood, as though they are nearest and dearest friends

Sparkling in the dark of night, the storyteller’s long full beard blows

inside some slightly pursed breeze carrying itself through on it’s way elsewhere


Slowly, ever tenderly, this man of knowledge enters his dimly moonlit circle

of carefully set seats carved from massive trunks of trees

as the center fire catches from ignited coals

his face glows inside night’s ever darkening essence


Through forest’s imaginary lives, ever stealthily and reverently

a somber multitude of feet trod paths so well known

Eyes shine with multi colored glee as they search the night

coming to rest upon this majestic man’s countenance


Eyes of intense wonder frame him, as passing roaming feet

flood their hosts through, calmly sitting them in awe

of the spectacle to be presented.

In an aura of hushed majesty, he begins…


“It’s all about the story”
