Magic of Old Men’s Stories

Prompt ~

Magic night of old men

(Still boys at heart)

Their desire is only Time’s

Lingering embrace, beauty

Of redwood trees, any ocean’s

Beauty of sea-sprayed lather

Above, milky pink sky-show

And fishing…always fishing

Ask about those things

They talk on and on

I fall into the sparkle

Of their eyes…adventures


Their storytelling invokes

Salt-tang, woodsmoke poetry

Symphony of masculine language

Voices gentle and husky…

Some men trudge through life

Others let true spirit soar

Lusting for loveliness
