Six word Friday-Novel


In her head is a story.
It plays in the third person
through all of her experiences, thoughts,
often referring to herself as "she." 
It feels more universal that way
and comes to her so naturally.
Stories, stories, she tells herself stories,
stories about herself, stories about life
and love and fear and overcoming.
Stories about paths and gifts, opportunity.
Stories about connection, and holy things.
She often lives in her mind,
always making sure it connects heart.
She wants to hear your stories.
Her tender eyes will meet yours
and her heart will open wide.
You and she and he are
more alike than different, you see.
We just hear, see and digest
stories differently, our very own novels.

A novel idea....see Melissa's blog

Oh Tessa, I just love this. I've always been intrigued by the notion of the universe as a text that contains all of our stories within it. I love how you connected your stories to mine (and everyone else's). We are one (more often than we realize). Thanks!

Powerful and true, we all digest the stories differently and yet we are all connected.
