A Room Full of Words

A Room Full of Words

written by: Jenny Thomas



A room full of words,

Worlds on wooden shelves.

Time withers the spine,

In the temple of the mind.


It is a forest of thought.

Each book a tree, each word a leaf.


Dust separates leaves and reveals

A transformation.


The ink cracks and fades.
The page, once Spring, dimmed to ochre brown.


Structures unveiled in a forest of thought.


“The Forest is a Temple of the Sun!”

Wire twisted into words,

Ghosts against the yellow grass.
