100 Word Challenge, Poems

Bibliophilia

A quiet, soft spot to be alone
A steaming cuppa, a good book, warm blanket,
Getting lost in the words of a land unknown

Knights and maidens glorified in iambic sonnet
Uncharted stars and worlds strange
Joining an unexpected journey with a Hobbit

A family saga set against the good earth
Freedom to read radical verse and liberal thought
Lines of romantic poetry penned by Wordsworth

Ship’s log recounting the quest of an Argonaut
Crusading cleric investigating medieval crime
The end of these stories leave me overwrought

More an obsession than a pastime
A love of stories lasting a lifetime

Inspiration: Freedom
