ONE in FIFTY-FIVE



--Drawing/Painting by one FAVORITE blogger--Claudia
"From my sketchbook/two women at the neighbor table"


When chest feels empty
due to hurting heart,
public library becomes solace…
turning to prayer
holding book to me tightly,
turn page and read:

Amazing! that E V E R Y T H I N G
affects everything else,
is dependent or depends on...

and I alone–as hermit,
missed the whole meaning of
Ocean Universe
in which all things are….
One

    1. I just re-read a big chunk of your story, Stacie...it never NEVER becomes tiring. Were I your publisher, I'd not change ONE WORD! (And the world SHOULD have opportunity to read or hear it.)

  8. The library was were I spent a lonely youth.. It's such a good place to survive a loneliness.. To realize you're outside oneness is so dark yet important.

  10. Yes, I love libraries too - although this morning I had a trip to the library with the children and they were sitting grumpily at a table instead of happily browsing through bookshelves like they normally do. And I wondered at what point does a library become a punishment rather than a reward? Maybe I should stop trying to recommend books to them... Or forbid them to ever enter a library...

  13. Indeed, I too find solace in books, the smell of paper, the texture of the words underneath my fingertips, the inspiration of the sounds as I mouth the words...
