Readers, Poets and Book Lovers

Simply Elfjes

Pardon
the dust
covering the shelf
upon which i lay
books.


Too busy dusting

Thanks
to you
I have read
more than two books
today!


Thank teachers, poets and parents

Eternally
remember me
as the girl
who laid in bed
reading.


Intellectual prowess

Writers,
every great
story starts by
reading another great author’s
book(s).

Patience
is best
utilized when caution
becomes second nature to
editing.

Publishing
Ad hoc
producing fame overnight
is every aspiring author’s
dream.


The Reader (2008)

Freedom
found within
another sensuous mind.
We learned about love
reading.

Poetry
