Story Inspired by Sunday Scribblings

Sunday Scribblings

S T O R Y

We need our story, a framework upon which to hang our lives.
The words are our heartbeat, the rhythm to which we walk. . .
or waltz, depending on the chapter.

Some sentences are so beautiful that we ride their meaning,
skilled and agile like a surfer to the shore.

Some are not . . .

But we turn the page and it is gone.
Just a memory, just another part of the story.

And the ever unfolding tale
moves on . . .

This piece has a parallel with Fitzgerald's translation of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. "The moving finger writes and having writ moves on."

A beautiful piece of writing.

Poetic, with great imagery!

Old Egg 'pinched' what I was going to say, namely 'The moving finger writes.......etc' Darn it! Nevermind. A beautiful piece, beautifully written.
