Where Am I?

Abstract art

Sometimes wonder

Where I do reside.

Living life daily

In different worlds,

Virtual and real.

Social Media,

News, Televison,

Websites,and books.

Asleep and awake,

I am a sojourner.

My Journey With Books

journey with books

I have been walking
The streets of San Francisco
“In Places Hidden”
Remembering the place
“Where Lilacs Still Bloom”,
While listening to “The Sound of Rain”,
With Judd and Larkin
And, as Hannah did, I am
Clinging to “A Passionate Hope”
Like Masuo Yasui in a “Stubborn Twig”
Or like those many pioneers did
On “The Oregon Trail”.
I, like “Judah’s Wife”, seek peace and safety
So I stop for a “Praise Pause”,
And praise God using one of His many names.
I am so grateful for His “Cherished Mercy”
And His “Redeeming Grace”.

Wisdom
And Adventure
Sit upon my shelves
Pages of words waiting to be read
By me
Each day
Stories and poems enrich my days
Emotionally filling
My heart and soul
With joy

Who Am I ?

I am always surrounded by many books.
I have letters and decimals in my day.
I am here to happily help one who looks.
I am always surrounded by many books.
Very often I meet readers, writers and cooks.
I love what I’m doing. I want to stay.
I am always surrounded by many books.
I have letters and decimals in my day.
