Profile Information

from "Watchng", a suite of poems for my father John, 1937-2013

IV

Strange to watch you Dad, become a stone.

In childhood, you were our rock;

we climbed you, we clambered over you,

we built our home 

on you.

Now the wind weathers you,

time, rain and hail hammer you;

you don’t flinch.

Moss grows on you, insects burrow 

into the deep-lined cracks of your face.

I enter the room;

you don’t respond.

And my small mother, determined,

hauls you this way, hauls you that way,

rolls you to where the sun can warm you;

you don’t flinch.

and I leave you both,

you, unmoving, but leaving,

and my mother, a tender Sisyphus,

rolling our rock 

up the hill.

I am not a story-teller but am very excited about including a story-telling event to our annual "live Oaks & Dead Folks" cemetery tour. Do you have any suggestions on how to make it an interesting idea in which story tellers would "want" to participate.

A reason to tell an old story... How interesting! I never look for reasons; I work completely by instinct. If I like it, I tell it - simple as that. I suppose I choose stories that resonate at an entirely personal level and believe that human emotions don't change, no matter how many centuries have passed. I just like the idea of taking an old story - something that would have captivated medieval audiences - and making it shimmer anew for modern listeners. Yes, the stories I have mentioned are classified as medieval romances. Cat x
