Novel in the Flesh

The scars upon my skin
Colored images of
Memories past
Like words in a book
My flesh a novel
My limbs the pages
Spinning stories
And exaggerations

In Memoriam

Blessed be they
Who renounce transcendence
To spend their lives
In telling stories
Bright moving pictures
That ease our sadness

In Coming.

My druthers would be you
Coming through the door
Soaking wet
In that fabulous old trench
Brimming over with stories
For our tea.

Life Paths

Like the green foliage of trees
Life paths move from reveries
To intertwined stories

Life stories are daily told
And retold…
One feels compassionate
About some happenings
The world never learns life lessons…

He sipped afternoon tea
and remembered a
primal forest

– childhood tales

dark creatures
peering out.

His biscuit broke.
