The old storybook


I found the old storybook
of Russian fairy tales
That Papa used to read to me
for hours
and I was reminded of
many adventures, many journeys
that I had gone on then
One of them
I am yet to return from

The first law of storytelling- Every man is bound to leave a story better than he found it.

Nicely said. I have some in my head and I would love to leave them behind provided a find an illustrator to work with me.

yeah i used to love the russian fairy tales a lot too. My dad used to buy them in Daryaganj for twenty bucks. I loved the feel of their names as they rolled off my tongue, the wildness of their magic.
