I love the 'sliver of light' part. Very pretty. Good work. My magpie: http://verseinanutshell.wordpress.com/2011/05/16/open-book/
The image of books as a garden is magic. A garden to linger in for hours and hours, days and days, forever.
If there was ever a time or place to not ask for assistance, that would be it...getting lost in freedom, one book at a time.I like this very much.
nice...oh i have found freedom in a book or two in my day...
You would make one kick ass librarian, Rene!
Love the imagery you have created, lost on a garden path, seeking pleasure beyond the fenceposts. Stunningly shared.
Intriguing, unique-- thanks! xxj
enjoyed entering your garden of books
The notion of the picket fence is wonderful. Lovely piece, Rene.
Very creative. I especially njoyd the first two stanzas.
I see this in the same way, Rene. :-) I love it.... and should you find yourself overcome/dizzy with imagination, someone will be by shortly to commisserate...Pearl
Some of the best parts of my life have been spent in that world behind the loose planks in the fence of books which you've built so perfectly. You've captured that sense of a better reality inside the covers.
My first wife was a librarian. Super sexy. Still is.
Really nice one Renee.
Love it all and the last stanza made me smile - brilliant!Anna :o]
A few steps till outside escapism! Wonderful!
wonderful journeys await, beautiful feelings ahead.
Pick out your book and escape through the new gateway --- love it.
Nicely doneyou pull the reader right in to the world between the coversThanks for sharing with One Shot
You obviously try to avoid paperbacks! LOL
A wow take on the prompt image - love this one -
lovely tribe to Liberian, library, and books they serve.
A very neat and well-sustained metaphor.
