Our story

There is more to the story of us
than we have told each other,
than we have found back
in old family photo’s,
in our genes, in rituals
and sounds.

Hidden in dark caves and old riverbeds
some creatures live that we don’t know
and where they started their journey,
or if they fit in that of our own,
remains to be seen.
Still we think of them and call them dragons.

Nothing we know of this,
is true or false, as we can’t judge,
there is no beginning nor end
and still it’s a story.
We live in it, slowly turning the pages,
making poems about it.

  1. Yes, very nicely put Ina – we are more than the sum of our parts. Our real life is the life of the mind.

  2. Ina,

    This is a great poem!

    That second stanza really holds some power for me! It is food for thought, most definitely!

    And the last two lines are just wonderful. You have a great gift for finishing your poems
    so satisfactorily!! :):)

    Love and hugs xx

  4. And as we are constantly discovering ourselves…it becomes all the more interesting!

    ‘Nothing we know of this,

    That is what true creativity is all about, I think!
