Legend and Lullaby
According to the ubiquitous Wikipedia:
'Legends are tales that, because of the tie to a historical event or location, are believable, although not necessarily believed. For the purpose of the study of legends, in the academic discipline of folkloristics, the truth value of legends is irrelevant because, whether the story told is true or not, the fact that the story is being told at all allows scholars to use it as commentary upon the cultures that produce or circulate the legends.'
Do you wonder what will happen to our blogs, posts and lives which are exposed to the mighty Internet? Is there a time capsule to hold our legends? Or will there be but a brief blurb: 'they came, they saw, they showed'.
I've tried to tell or write pieces of backgrounds for family members but there are many stories and maybe those which are most important will fall through the cracks.
comforting and calm
as my parents’ hands
sunlight soothes my back
passes by without a song
but I yearn to leave
love’s lullaby for those who glide
in that space I leave behind
