Stories are Spirits


Perhaps stories are spirits
that live in our world.
The creative are born with
the means to hear them:
in dreams, in sunlight,
in waving goldenrod, and
in all the places in between.
Then we transform what we hear
into poetry, novels and art.

Note: I found this goldenrod blooming near the White Mountains, Vermont. The very air was full of stories.

“After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”
― Philip Pullman
