Bookshelves


Bookshelves

I
like
how light
plays on bindings
of so many stories told
I keep hold of passages in my collection
see how life’s unfolded through places I have ventured out to in books
I can't imagine life with out this window into appreciating stories, especially poetically versed, that resonate with every fiber of me

  1. There really is something magical, isn't there, about the passages in books that particularly resonate! Really a fine 'fibonacci' poem, Willow.

  8. I love your take on your own library and I can see the titles in low light. I think about what is going to happen to our bookshelves with all the electronic books but I have my personal copies of the books that mean the most to me, books my friends have written. I would never have dreamed that Skywriter books would send me into memories so vivid of that period of time. Miss that time.

  9. Lovely - and I like the layout. It looks like a half a book opened at the spine.
