Storytellers

by Trkz

Everyday we walk our streets, absorbing colours, conversations, faces, honks, and endless smells. We drive and dive into devices that propel us forth, in ways that those before us couldn’t fathom.

A lot ot time is spent within the bubbles we've created. With reason, that is so. How else would we be able to maintain a vital self, or know to filter that which does not fit into our world? There is a perk, nevertheless, to the deserted act of slowing down. To switching off, breathing in, looking up and listening. Perhaps the dancing of the leaves above may catch your eye. Perhaps your ears would follow trails to a tender symphony, directed by the flocks that go unseen on what we call a normal day. The formless hands of angels usher us to see and search beyond, as only then
