Blogword No. 33: Story

I’m a consummate weaver

Your imaginings my skeins, strands of dreams, whispers of magic, laced between the tips of my fingers

I sit here by a fire and draw a picture with the wisps of smoke that curl above it

Watch with me and see how the flickers within the flame burn red and orange and gold with the words I speak

Feel the stillness as the wind stops and then stirs,

Wanting to move on and unable to resist holding on for just another moment to see where I could take it

See how my hands move, picking out stars and jagged moons and all the slivers of light

And bring them to just where you can reach for them!

I draw on what you think you might see

And dare you to look till they come to be!

Visions, creatues, places and things, more than magic

Far beyond this world!

Do you see the black and gold visage of a dragon; 

And the splendor of the one who rides him?

Spraying the fields below

With ambers and reds, bright blues and greens

Iridescent gleams of jewels that line your kingdom

Yet pale against the wonder in your eyes and the smile on your lips 

I may not be Scherzade of a thousand tales

But when I am with them, I am their only window to the world!

For the little glowing faces in the stillness of the room;

Away from the grownups,

I am the one who holds all the keys to the realm they dream of.

I am the story teller!

    *applause* – standing ovation. certainly one of your best pieces Sarah.

    How many times do you have to remind you to start working on your novel. Damn shame that these words are just made available for the net, they out to be in print.

    I don’t want any excuses!…work on it! that is an order!

    FUCK! that’s what happens when I get emotional while commenting. The above comment should read “How many times do I have to remind you to start working on your novel. Damn shame that these words are just made available for the net, they ought to be in print”

    There, sorted!
