The dust-covered book
sits silently on the table
waiting to be dusted
and read


The Meeting the Bar prompt at dVerse Poets Pub yesterday was to write a poem in the style of imagism. I immediately thought of the above short bit of verse.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

    • I’m not a fan of dusting, either, though I recently reorganized my bedroom library space and dusted a few books and book shelves. I’ve picked up and started reading at least two of those now-dusted books. 🙂

  1. Book signed by
    Pope.. XPriest
    Book.. Yellow
    Boy sits
    i say..
    if Yellow
    Boy is not
    that book
    there is no
    God but pages
    in a book.. that’s
    a parable my friend
    and more than
    for now..:)

  2. Sadly I have a stack of books that are gathering dust…my reading has taken a back seat to writing lately. But I’ll be dusting them off soon. 🙂
