“The engineers of the future will be poets.” Terence McKenna

Fearless Taletellers

Taleteller breathing pages,
taking words and weaving story,
telling meaning so creatively,
talking with living metaphors.

Fearless alchemists of feeling,
faint not the hearted of those myths
forged slow with melded elements
found in glades of gladdening.

Happy those without cabalism,
heretics of love and desire
honouring our narratives,
honed in despair and struggle.

lost in gratitudes beyond,
lifting to the highest heaven
leaven of many sacred souls,
listing toward the brave new truth.

  4. That brave new truth should probably come from stepping away from the cabals
