Beneath the dusty cover,

these pages are a brown tinged

crinkly time machine.

I’m caught in a story

I can’t come out;

I’ll say I’m sorry.

But

I must stay and read

this day away,

Not really sorry to be

in need of story

There was no way to stay.

Whatever choice was made

was bound to be wrong,

because this song we create

requires we pay again and again

for our harmonic

dissonance.

Still reading Jodi Picoult’s Mercy.   Do you write poems for the characters you read about?

Pattern stitches

on demand

bordered diamonds

needles

hooks

open sesame

mind

body

spirit

try

This one was ‘found’ using words that I could see from where I was sitting on books, labels, and TV.

Row on row

books rest, wise and eager

waiting for a hopeful reader

Someone seeking information

or an escape into fiction.

In racks and stacks

new worlds await

and the library is the gate.

In quiet corners

obsession lingers

eyes stuck tight

while passion flames.

Wrapped in arms,

stroked, caressed,

paper thin

each moment savoured

with lingering longings

until with sighs,

the last

page is turned.

(Always so sad when a great book comes to an end)

 

poem- doorbell June 17, 2014

Sleeping in

enjoying dream embraces

of a book boyfriend when

the doorbell rings

with delivery of the next instalment

in the relationship.
