Poem and Photos

a small card
in a devotional book
from a thrift store

words of encouragement
from one person to another

I keep the card with the book
and its history today
and tomorrow

From my site, Poems From Psalms And Nature

Used books sometimes bring personal notes with them, or simply the name of the person who owned the book. I also like how a book that once belonged to a library has that history. Perhaps a book was discarded/sold to make room on the shelves, and had not been borrowed for a time. Now the book continues its journey in another way.

These are photos by Karl, from last summer.
