Where Are The Stories? – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“And suddenly you know: it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of new beginnings.” Meister Eckhart

Where Are The Stories?

Where are the stories of your beginnings?
Do you know the place where they reside?
Are they black and white or many colours?
Where do the go late into the night?

Do you know the place where they reside?
Surely they are sacred treasures of heart,
where do they go late into the night
when all is quiet in the shining darkness?

Surely they are sacred treasures of heart
so neatly scattered in chaotic patterns,
when all is quiet in the shining darkness,
except the loud constellations of love.

So neatly scattered in chaotic patterns,
are they black and white or many colours?
Except the loud constellations of love,
where are the stories of your beginnings?

  7. Another pantoum that works beautifully, Paul! ❤ The last couple of days, I have been having a lot of lucid dreams. This morning I dreamed animated conversations with my son as I was trying to go back to sleep. I have been talking to him every day about transitions in his life. Maybe that's the reason.

    "Surely they are treasures of the heart." Your poem spoke to me! 🙂

  10. I don’t have words to describe this!! It’s beautifully. The start is one of the most difficult phases and we really don’t have any stories about it
