the art of storytelling

My grandpa was a great storyteller.

we sat on the couch
like pigeons on telophone wire
he sculpted the words with his mouth
as our imaginations painted the picture
attent
and patient
we sat
absorbed by the tale.

We could have sat for hours
as he held our attention
smiling
laughing
smiling
laughing
we could have sat for hours
