Charles Mostly


A worn passage in a much loved book
with a spine that has relaxed with time
but still manages, easily, to hold itself together.
Though, that easily is not always so easy
he seeks to appear so
for the sake of warm fingers that clasp him.

When placed on a shelf he leans,
ever so lightly, to the side.
Not because he needs the support
but because he senses others do
but are too proud.
Besides, he likes the view.

This book is you. You are a timeless classic.
Thank you for letting me read your words.

  1. I’m speechless. I know when most people say that, they go on and on forever telling you how speechless they are, but I really am. I love visiting your blog and always read your poems at least twice, and sometimes three or four times, absorbing another taste of wisdom with each reading.

    At the risk of repeating myself, I wish we were neighbors, talking over the fence about the weird ideas scrambling around inside our heads. But this is fun, too, being blogging neighbors. Thank you, Bekki.

    Did I mention that I’m speechless?

  2. I think you might have. 🙂

    Being your neighbor would be fun. I can talk to you over our virtual fence anytime you like though. 🙂

    Currently I am playing with the idea of writing a book. It’s a Paranormal detective story and somewhat weird and dorky, but it is all mine. I am stuck on chapter 3 so I plan to write a post muttering dire things under my breath very soon.

    I am slowly learning how to write dialog (something I do when I talk to myself but quite another thing when you are writing about 2 different people talking and each must include a characters personality and mannerisms in their speech and dialect. I am going to stop talking now..before I hyperventilate) Also I am learning about Hapkido, Gumiho’s (also known as a nine-tailed-fox’s or Kitzune’s) and the really cool knives called Dan Geom (small knife) and a Bi Su (Hidden knife used by assassins). My character is going to be a bad-ass. LOL.

    Here is a tasty peek at some of the story-line.

    My main character is Lexi, she is my detective. This is meant to make you curious. Let me know if it worked and I will get you the password to read my work in progress. Muhhahahah.

    “Her hand was on the doorknob to the front door when all hell broke loose, or at least what felt like it might be hell (having never been there she was assuming it had similarities). The floorboards gave a lurch and there was a strange smell of sulfur in the air. The hair in the back of Lexi’s head stood up at attention and Mattahari, her cat, immediately took the opportunity to get while the getting was good. Whatever it was that was happening in the hallway clearly was not something Matti wanted any part in. “Which makes her smarter than me” muttered Lexi just before turning the knob and walking in.”
