the sky is the limit

#socs #theskyisthelimit

The sunshine peeks through the panes of glass

and what do you see?

feathered friends flying over local rooftops

navigating through clouds and fog

and resting on terracotta tiles

meanwhile you’re sat indoors,

held prisoner by a microscopic bug

don’t let that stop you though –

there’s thousands of places you can go to

from epsilon 5 to the wilderness of western hills

simply by perusing your own bookshelf

Bookshelf

#poetry #acrostic #home

Brimming with reading material

Old and new

Often hardbacks but sometimes paperbacks

Kindles and other consumable electronics on one bit

Softbacks, toys and notebooks for scribbling on another

Hardwired in the centre – a music box

Entertaining the listener with comedies and audiobooks

Life portrayed in photo and sound digitally

Filed away in a box of digital media cards

Bookstore owners are getting upset

Reality is their customers are using the stores more like a library

Objecting to paying full price for their wares

When they know they can pick up a free copy from the web

Simply by clicking a button on their devices

Even now – they’re not picking off the shelf – they’re noting down titles

Lego Man – Out in Space! – Image by Brian F Kirkham

He always wanted to travel

Lego man living on the shelf

his greatest descent – not a fall from grace

but sent into flight from a feather duster

till one day he flew

onto a book that made his dreams

into reality (of sorts) – as he landed and

walked into a patchwork of stars

#Napowrimo , Day 10 – the bookspine challenge

A seven line poem created from books on my Bookshelf

Extreme perception –

Reflected Memories (or)

Animal Antics –

Inspired by my Museum

The Last word –

Why don’t penguins feet freeze ?

(Thinking about it only makes it worse!)
