My bookcase napowrimo #11

Big cats walking on the ceiling

I watch them uncomfortably from my iron chair

Slipping a book from my bookcase of regrets

Turning to chapter seven



Goldfish swimming on the wall

Reflecting waves on the pages

Making the words swirl nauseatingly

As I remember …



Dogs walking on stilts out in the yard

Remind me of where I am today

Sitting in my iron chair remembering how you fell

And not being there to catch you

  3. wow I love the imagery! I agree with Robin, I like how you talk about picking the book up from the bookshelf and turning to, not the first page, but chapter 7. Interesting. Great poem, Pamela!

  5. I got some great images from this. I can see the goldfish undulating in watery lines on the wall, reflecting off the book. And the dogs on stilts ... and not being able to catch someone ... wonderful!
