Your Verse

I told my story and the trees asked, “Do you need all those words?”

I simplified the message and the songbirds asked if I wanted it heard with a rhythm.

I lifted the story up with expressive words and the stones asked if the meaning was solidly grounded.

Now, when I tell my story I either laugh or cry and I am universally understood.
