When we lose

When we lose the ability
to tell stories –
steep in histories
to savor them
to allow them
residence in our souls.
To allow them
to instruct us and guide
our steps.
When we brush them aside
as unworthy
of our attention or adoration.
That is what separates the
dead from living –
that is the true death,
because storytelling is…
the elemental, no the providental,
force of our… humanity.
