Violet bluebell( used to be yellow rose)

A bookshelf stands silently

A bookshelf stands quietly as if like a mouse content maybe 

still in all her shy like ways 

she stands silently 

with stories resting inside 

a quiet stand 

a restful inside world maybe 


bookshelf holds so much with what seems to be an ease 

allowing all stories to sigh or smile dream or laugh 

without pushing them away 

because she can’t 

she’s meant to hold them all with an acceptance that’s in her nature 


a bookshelf stands as quiet as a mouse saying nothing 

quiet in her nature and accepting in her ways 

she just wishes she could speak up so others can hear her words 


internal world sits with so many words all held within 

and she allows them to rest and allows them to be 

she doesn’t push them away 

let’s them be like the leaves stirring gently in the branches of a tree 

allowing accepting 

a home within a shelf 

a home within ourselves

    Dear friend, this is so beautiful. I'm a chain reader, always a book at hand for when I finish the current one. This touches my heart in so many ways. Every time I go into my library, your words will reverberate in my head. Thank You!

      Hello Bella 🙂Thankyou so much for your kind comments on my poems . I’m glad you enjoyed this . I think we all probably need to feel at home and comfortable in ourselves .. and we may also want to express ourselves more . I guess we need to be accepting of the parts of ourselves ( self love ) I guess .

      Yes, a bookshelf holds all the worldly knowledge within in borders on multiple shelves, silently, watching passerby, sometimes stop with curiosity, hoping that a book will be retrieved and pages browsed, but that will only be if we read your poetic words.
