Poem 93 – Book In My Hands

Book In My Hands

This birthing
emotional spectrum
from stardust to deep earth to seed to trunk to tree
the heavy pressing into pages
oh the holding of Time – inked

A book
the galaxy of its giving
its open-hearted taking
the glorious exchange between writer & reader
the tongue the ear the sounds of life delivered

the feasting on story
the obesity of love


IT’S BOOK DAY!

Today I get to open a box of freshly printed copies of ‘thimbles’! Yay! I’ll be sure to capture the joyous occasion and share it with you! Thank you Palimpsest Press for making this poet’s dreams come true!
