Poetic Thursday: Just Imagine

Another Thursday, another poem with Pam and her kitties at Two Spoiled Cats.

This week’s inspirational photo shows the Library of Trinity College in Dublin. Click here to learn more about this library.

Today, I’m dedicating my poem to my dear long-time friend, Janet, a school librarian:

Just Imagine

Just imagine the sentences, verbs and nouns,
the adjectives, adverbs, and pronouns.

Just imagine all that paper and ink:
the story lines that make you think.

Just imagine the thoughts in an author’s head,
and all those books waiting to be read.

Just imagine a rainy day
when the words in a book sweep you away.

Just imagine a trip in your easy chair;
turn the pages, and poof, you’re there.

Just imagine how dark this world would seem
with no art, no songs, no books and no dreams.
