Poetry Tuesday: Storytelling

Storytelling


The gentle watery flow smashing against the ragged rocks.

The snowcap mountains nestled against the bluest sky

wisps of a soft breeze whispering against the blushing cheek

unanticipatory verbiage impacting emotions


to thine own self be true

to rhyme without rhythm

to eat, to pray, to love


the best of times, the worst of times

the state of an era,

the unpredictable elipses


the improper but appropriate pause

inflection for reflection

brilliant salutations


morphemes

contractions

exclamatory fragments


Freedom within thought

freedom to express

Once upon a time ...

it was a dark and stormy night.

Of man's first disobedience ...

We hold these truths to be self-evident...


learned growth,

long journeys into the lost world

satisfaction at the close of the book.


artful, impacting, storytelling.
