THE CALLIGRAPHER’S CARROUSEL

Deceptively, beautiful scripts of the hand

A treat for the eye

From a talented man

__________

Imperfect and perfect for all to see

Alive on the pages

Of what could be

__________

The Calligrapher’s carrousel displayed in a dance

Talented fingers

Pirouette at the chance

__________

Steady and true to the old dying art

How it plays to our senses

Like it did at the start

_________

But time is not friendly in this age of men

As the carrousel stops

And the page finds its end

Tell The Story…

MSJadeli, Tao Talk, has tagged me to follow up in this challenge of “Tell the Story’ which was created by The Eclectic Contrarian.

Here is my take on the image above:

Some called him foolish and others called him brave

A lowly man with his camera at the mouth of the cave

But not just a cave that you would normally see

No, this was a cave in the trunk of a tree

For hundreds of years, the rumors had flown

Of the sounds that emanated from regions unknown

And all sorts of creatures that crept out at night

From the mouth of this cave, something didn’t seem right

So, looking for truth and to put rumors down

A brave, young cowboy had come into town

He set up his table, and camera and chair

To see what the fuss was and what was happening there

The local paper sent a photographer to capture the scene

After snapping some shots he fled with a scream

Because deep from inside that old, old tree cave

Came a bellowing sound just like a shockwave

When the police arrived the very next day

No signs were seen of what had been foul play

Nothing was there at the entrance, you see

Just the mouth of a cave in the trunk of a tree

Now I am supposed to challenge 3 bloggers:

I heard the words, “STOP NOW!”

It wasn’t so much an audible voice as much as it was a tangible voice inside my head.

“God?” I said aloud, “I am here, and I am listening.”

There was a silence that lasted for what seemed minutes.  The hairs on my neck began to stand on end as I felt the inevitable getting closer.  His voice was about to penetrate again.  In the anticipation of this, I took a deep breath. 

“My son,” said He.  “My plans for you are the very plans you know in your heart.  Slow down, and listen to your heart.  In this, you will be listening to me.”

I then fell to my knees with tears freely flowing and said to my Lord and Savior, “I am yours, Lord.  Your will be done in me and through me.  I will listen to my heart.”
