Writing From Reality



The bus ran on time but up side

down; the driver wore a Covid lid

that read FEAR. I made his day

more misery than the purgatory

I found him in. It was fun.


The post office by definition

is a trip. Found free small sturdy

cardboard boxes at the dollar store

($1.25 Dollar Store). UPS and USPS

charge $10 to $15 for those.


Books through the genres

on the highway to super charge

young brains and old grey matter.


My personal library cried goodbye.

The station master did not see

the separation anxiety tears. We 

had been together most of my

reading life.

I teared up especially uring

I teared up especially uring the last stanza...

It may or may not be the thing that lives forever about us. Nothing is certain... 


But no great glory is without equal sacrifice,

Sometimes a new home is just the thing to raise new hopes and better beginnings... 

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS    

"Well, it's love, but not as we know it."

Give A Book A Good Home


Not for show but to read and nurture. It was soooo hard to give up The Little Prince to a six year old. :D
