Thank You, Corngoblin!

Haunting, comforting, sad, powerful...

Reblogged from corngoblin:

Here's a short poem I wrote in participation of WeWriWa:

There is a book
An old Arab trader warned me of
that takes your whole life to read.
Whole worlds are contained within.
And when you finish
you have just one day
to think it over and decide
if it was worth it after all.

I admire great poetry, all the more so because I have no idea how it's done.  This one is beautiful and true.

The Weekend Writing Warriors looks interesting too...
