Library Balm

Momentary solace a sanctuary

Library ambiance soothes

Prison walls, bars recede in prominence

Knowledge, edification shift into focus

Reprieve from negativity, tedium treasured.

Tuning out needless chatter

She immerses herself in browsing

Books beneficial balm to aching soul.

Sun sneaks past bars

Bathes selected chair

Caresses sensorily deprived skin

Rays warm arms

Heal withered heart

Unexpected bonus gift

Surprisingly bestowed,

Gratefully received.

One thought on “Library Balm

  1. Dude. I’m a bit nervous because “my” library branch (2 miles from my house) will be closed next week for renovation. And now, I’m reminded I have the freedom to go to any damn library I want. 😊
