Story - a poem by Barbara Moore Vincent

Everything in life
Has a purpose.
The backyard is not as big
As it used to be.
The water running down the tree
Tells a story.
I have been watching it
All afternoon.

This sensitive and reverberating poem has been midwifed by US poet and artist Stephen Vincent from a phone conversation with his aged mother, Barbara Moore Vincent. He is now working on a project with the working label of Mother/Dementia/Poetry.

Water does tell a story,
I, too, could watch it all day.
