Tidal waves of books

Tidal waves of books,

Sloshing round my room,

Pouring down from bookcases

Dripping from tables,

Making a beach of pamphlets

Puddles of novels

A tide of documents.

I sit in a paper sailing boat

Atop an ocean of biography.

Littered with paperbacks

Swimming with pratchett turtles

and the old man of the sea.

I’m drowning in books,

Flooded by books

Waves crashing over my head.

Whirlpools of literature ……..

  1. I’m not sure if you are bragging or complaining. 🙂

    But either way, I’m right there with you. I am awash with books … and alas, at an age where I probably will no longer be able to get to them all.
