Storytellers Almost All

Storytellers – almost all –

when food and drink abound,

in loosened tongues and memories

long-hidden, long-removed.

It births among us belly-laughs

and tears that flood deep spaces

as we recall unfathomable

names and times and places.

Every person in this room

a sacred mystery

of love and loss, of hope and fear –

a living history.
