A Realm Of Many Worlds
Poet | Erica Odell
A Realm of Many Worlds
Top to bottom store front windows display
favorites and classics of the day.
The rays rush and burst inside,
pushing away the dark; it cannot hide.
I dance with the illuminated dust in the air
landing on books with care.
Stacks upon stacks of beautifully woven
pages and spines so delicate and strong.
I take a moment to capture the smells,
Inhale – dust and tales
of mystery read between your fingers
or fantasy on waves and in the sky.
Dangers of love
- if you dare
to forego the faerie realms and pointed ears
I read beyond the printed words
and live within the
ink stained pages and coffee rims
hand written annotations in margins.
Book marked and dog eared,
oh look, stacks of Shakespeare.
In a corner I will find,
a world much bigger than mine.
