the way you tell


The way you tell – is soft

and round


The way you tell – to soft ears

around a campfire


You round the edges, and make

them easy


Travelling for your listener,

in the way

a meandering river, rounds

its bends


And leads you, on a soft journey to the sea.


The soft cadence permeates

the reading


Letting the reader laugh along

as one

would laugh along, with a father


The softness, lending the effect of intimacy

Softly, softly catchy

Softly, softly catchy monkey... I felt hypnotised by the firelight, eyes heavy and feeling happy, warm and content,  nice write! 

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS
