words do wonders.a book could open doors.beautiful magpie.
And that knowledge is great, like your words.
Love your images and the fingers of the wandering Jew itchy to explore the books.
Another deceptively simple, yet perfect little gem.
I like this ... plants trailing over a book's edge. Nice image.
I love this, Anna. Gorgeous.
Rembrandt and Shakespeareand you, all seem to have asolid grasp of the conceptof the wandering jew, in theearth and in literature, eachtouching the other, eachweighing the same.
What a wonderful visual that gave me, the leaves caressing the books. Gets right to the heart, bravo!
you open the doors to our imaginations to take this and run...very nice verse...
Eager indeed. Loved it and your style. Always a great read.
So much said in so few words - what a gift:-)
Thanks for your very kind comments folks.There is a history to this poem in that I wrote it twenty-five years ago. There is a reason why it has remained at the forefront of my memory banks - while others have just disappeared into who knows where.I have just been itching for a 'suitable' prompt and could not believe it presented itself on Monday!Anna :o]
wonderful! You have such a gift ! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such noce comments.
A beautiful description. I can see it clearly.
Simple and beautiful. A rich treat.
i did this today in fact, at my favorite antique mall...so many dusty books, so little time!
Excellent, love this.
and there's so much knowledge to be found there
Evocative. This made me think of so many things. Very much like reading a good book with an open heart and mind.
So much inside those bound volumes..beautifully expressed. Vb
Simply beautiful! I like that image with the (purple?) Wandering Jew touching the dusty books... great take on the prompt.
You are very creative. I love your addition of another photo to complete the story. Thank too for your visit. I am honored. :)
Plant life does have deep intelligence, so I'm not surprised to hear about its use of books! (lol)
