Tales of a Clear, Dark Night
by Jansen Estrup

The heavens, we are taught, have always inspired awe, tradition, even salvation. Why? What did our ancestors see there?..

Wriing from the soul.

The fourth book is done.

But, I love this one less than the first

which was written with my soul’s own ink.


These and the ones between

are others’ stories of courage,

youth, and sacrifice but only the first was written

with my soul’s own ink.


Although called a historian and author

I’m only a teller of tales, tales of those

whose deeds are greater than mine.

Of all the tales told, only the first

were written with my soul’s own ink.


Each person whose tale I scribe

takes a piece of my heart with them when they die.

But, each in turn, has enlarged to the cistern of my soul.

So perhaps I may in future write stories with the bottomless well of my soul’s own ink.

It seems many authors have their most integral life energy in the first book they write. I like that you equivalate the accumulation of other's input as potentially filling your cistern (a word seldom used anymore). In that light, when the cistern is completely full, you may love that no less than your first. Enjoyable reading your biography. Thanks for writing poetry, too. ~~ Diana
