ON MY BOOKSHELF

Published February 26, 2017 by Nan Mykel

Arrrrrggghh!  I see I’ve already posted this. Don’t know what to do about it but try harder next time to  pay attention to what I’m doing…horrified-emoticon

 

 

On my bookshelf you can see

my inner self revealed to thee.

Maybe Hen’s Teeth and Horse’s  Toes

won’t go far to show you me,

but Frames of Mind should give a hint

of where my time is largely spent.

Crack in the Cosmic Egg is from

an elderly college alum

who still values Games People Play

and Alan Watts any old day.a

User Illusion blew my mind

also Denial of Death in its kind,

and I include for brilliance

the author of Concilience.

Sheldon Kopp told me what to do

if Buddha I should run into,

while The Dream and the Underworld 

gave me frights, sanity a whirl.

And here’s an old one we all knew

none other than Miss Nancy Drew.

So now you know me stem to stern.

What can I expect from you in turn?

    • This is not my original copy, but I felt a yearning for it when I came across it, second hand recently. I think of books I like as good friends. And I quote from them at times, so I tend to hang onto them. Some people’s “transitional objects” were blankets. I think mine were books, although my daughter now has Heidi, Wizard of Oz, Chatterbox, Alice in Wonderland and Freddy the [pig] Detective–which I think was only a library book.Thanks for sharing that part of you.
