JWG's Tomorrow Today — The Books I Own (a poem)

Wherein JWG gets lost in his personal library.

The Books I Own

Reading will stretch a stymied brain.
Opening a book is not hard.
Understanding is difficult
If one is closed to ideas
Which are presented with panache.

For me, the Library
Was a sanctuary
In which I became lost
In stacks of written Worlds
That I perused with glee.

The Books I own
Are for research
To satisfy
My curious
Zest for knowledge.
