Today’s poem answers the prompt at Poetic Asides. If you need something to get you writing, visit that site.

Books

There are shelves crammed full,
Leaning stacks threatening to
Topple over here,
There must be thousands of them,
Still I want to acquire more.

Reading is a love
Of mine easily fulfilled,
But there is little
Reason to collect all these,
It seems such an obsession.

The library used
To be my favorite place,
I carted thousands
Back and forth, but decided
I should try reading my own.

Now I search among
The many volumes living
Here to find the one
Suitable to fit my mood
Cracking open the covers.

I am grateful:

1.   I was able to get an appointment today.
2.   I took a book, so I was not bored while waiting.
3.   I put my contacts back in.
4.   Doctor Desai decided I needed a shot to get better.
5.   I was able to get eight books for $25.00.

I hope your Monday was a nice day. I am very grateful that I was able to get medical attention since I was growing sicker. Take time to create something before you complete your day. It will add a rich finishing touch to your accomplishments.

    Hope you feel better soon Jo Ann. You bring so much joy to your readers so I hope you get to relax and heal quickly. The flowers with this post are lovely. The orange one looks like it is dripping with honey!

      Thank you Laura. You always brighten my day. I am perhaps a bit better today…

      Those flowers were wet from a morning rain. I thought they were quite beautiful.
