Look Beneath


Once upon a time there was a storyteller. A teller of magnificent tales who traveled from one place to another
always in disguise…….
Look beneath the surface
and what you find may surprise you
At first glance a buttoned jacket and laced up face
with no nonsense hands
look beneath
keep looking
and see the dreamer
find the believer of fairy tales
the one with a soft heart for giants
and a deep fear of what is behind the mirror on the wall
Look beneath the surface
beyond the schedule
the note pad
the mobile phone
behind the programmable dependable and self sufficient….
while the prince cuts grapes in the garden for the princess with amber eyes
and a magic carpet is woven from feathers and moonlight and the wild winds caught and bound
and a talking fox waits for a passerby to tell riddles
and a glorious golden fish wearing a three-wishes ring
flicks its tail and disappears
once more beneath the surface

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
