Poetry: Scavenger Hunt

Books, wonders of humanity,

stories that last centuries.

Ideas that persist through,

through years and change.

Books are now easy

to find online but

I prefer the search.

To find the stories

that I crave in

quiet corners of a

used bookstore.

Sitting on the floor,

looking up at shelves

packed with books.

Listening for the ones

that whisper for those

that can hear them.

To come and find

adventure, love,

understanding and

a thousand other

needed things

between worn

and well loved pages.

As always, if you enjoy my blog please consider buying me a cup of coffee.
