Far From Ours (an ode to bibliophiles)

“Today’s a beautiful day, and yesterday was a beautiful day, so it’s a great life.”

she perched by the window;

fog on her glasses

from the steaming mug of coffee

clutched in her hands;

eyes on the words

etched on the pages

engrossed in a world

far from ours;

leaves meandering

in the lightly blowing breeze

birds twittering in the distance;

cars racing off the highway

chasing frivolous nothings,

detached from the reality around

engrossed in a world

far from ours;

sunlight shimmering

off the crevices of her neck

tawny hair astray,

soundlessly speaking lips

devouring tales

of love and romance

engrossed in a world

far from ours.
