Telling stories

We are telling stories of a journey
not easy for the weak at the start,
and if talk is true , to walk these tracks
needs a red-hot heart; smoke; ash;
carbon footprints on skin sheets of ice.
We will swim with blood aquamarine veins
and be still for dreams and visions.
There'll be wine, the kiss of the fresh night air,
constellation footsteps across a violet sky,
and in the dust and crumbs of enraptured mountains,
when weakened knees fall to the earth,
arms outstretched, and in communion,
we will need to voice the words of love

Stories are the foothold of generations gone by and those who tread with voices of fire, water, earth, air, and spirit. Preservation of fermentation - syntax, grapes, and other WISE we've got Goodman...Cheers NG, be safe in your travels...

Love Always,

Very thought provoking words that question the destination of mankind and our connection to the beauty of love. Lots of room for the reader to use mind with soul to draw conclusions.

Well now, by the time I got to the end of this interesting take on the journey, I realized it wasn't so much a journey you were taking us on, but THE journey of life (That is my interpation of the poem and don't tell me I'm wrong . . . (((((smiling))))) . . . Very well done . . .
