The Need For Story

“Tell me a story.
In this century, and moment, of mania,
Tell me a story.
Make it a story of great distances, and starlight.
The name of the story will be Time,
But you must not pronounce its name."
Tell me a story of deep delight.

- From “Tell Me a Story” by Robert Penn Warren

  2. Yes, a space I can imagine. Just read your poem posted @budtheteacher's photo-poem prompt.

    Image often demands like expression.

    I am working on submitting a few images for a book that will be a collaboration between image and writer, At the Water's Edge.

    I will find the call for submission and send you the link. I thought it might interest you.
    Glad the work resonated.
