books and music

books and music
from over the years
live on these shelves
even if I don’t
reread or listen again
somehow their
healing influence
is in these words

I enjoyed donating some boxes of books and poetry journals this year, and plan a Christmas donation with a few music CDs.

a ribbon holds my place
