A book called Summer lightening by Tamara Mc Kinley inspired this…

Strangers reading you,
———————

Reading a good book sweeps you into
A whirlwind of strangers you love,
Weather soaking your skin, sweat
And tears mingling, creating a veil
Of numbness blotting out sounds…

Incessant claims nonetheless crawling
Back frazzling your protective shield.
Hoofs and horses, plains and dust,
Docksides, travelers, fleeing,
Spilling unto the burning sand,

Pages shift… projecting the lives
Of drifters unraveling…

Yours.
——-

And as a coincidence, on my sidebar here’s what I just found!

Dreams are illustrations from the book your soul is writing about you.

Marsha Norman

What if… the now. 4th of May 2013

What if…
———-

What if I would have pricked all those
Pages of words & poems, written along
Each emotion lived in the rivers of water
Shed on rocks & pebbles, polishing each
One until it sparkles in the warmth of
Spring’s first rays, kneading it to its
Fancy as the stories of my book.

What if I would have used a needle
& thread to build a chain… perhaps
Take it on a hard spin for a tumble of
Phrases, a choreography of black & white…
Pages & words flowing together gracefully
Interlacing… intoxicating them to life.
All events yarned into one, using the
Euphoric with the dramatic…
Would that have summed up the life of
Each & everyone of us?

What if we could have selected & built
A pyramid of chosen fragments & created
Our vision, molded our dreams.

What if…

Yes, what if life was not about wishes
But for us to unravel with excitement
& curiosity of the… what now?
