Story's Jar

A Poem by Kathy Van Kurin
"

Even adults can be young at heart and share a simple lovely story together just because!

"


Story's Jar



Oh, tell me a story, my husband, my dear.


Attention I need; your love, your cheer.


Close together, these moments to share.


My soul is so empty, come warm me sir.



Your voice, rise and fall, is melody fair.


Weave me a tale, you’ve done before.


Lonely woods cabin,of trees moaning low.


We dream together, one heart, one soul.



Time is our gift, each second bestows.


Through honey smiles, Fill 'moments bowl.'


 Bright fire glowing, our minds gaze within.


Story plays onward, embrace words again.



we are writing a song together, we sing.


I know we are blessed. Together we cling.


You are my color, refreshing love every day.


Morning Prayer waking; Oh God hold him near.



Let today’s cares be gentle, no struggles nor fear.


Tomorrow unknown, Let him trust for today.


Let worries flee so that we can be free.

                                                                                  

 Let life be our rhapsody.

I agree, being told a story is a great delight, especially when loving the sound of another's voice in particular. It's too bad we seem to have lost the art of verbal storytelling . . . nowadays it seems to be mostly ranting or other drama. Your poem brings back gentle times of sharing . . . good use of bright imagery & the last line is one we all wish we'd written! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thankyou Mr. Einstein. You have placed a gem in my morning! Kathy
Time spent with a loved one is precious indeed
within each golden moment you planted a seed
that when nourished becomes a song writ for two
that clings to the heart like first morning dew.

Well done, Kathy. Good write.

Dig the ending Kathy. Togetherness is a precious commodity, one maybe taken for granted at times.
But you're right. Let worries flee so that we can be free.
