Empty Tales

For SocS

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “tail/tale.” Use one, used them both, you decide. Enjoy!

Kind of used my lack of inspiration today as the subject.


Empty Tales

By Scott Bailey © 2018

I have no tales to tell
I have
But the retelling of them
Empties them
Of their worth
Tales of today
The same

  1. I enjoyed this post. I like the drawing of the distinction between the tales you have, and the tales you are willing to share. I can understand how retelling tales can cheapen their value, so being selective is important…
    …or maybe I am just reading into this too much. Either way, I enjoyed your post, and especially like there picture you chose to accompany it.
