Prompt: write a poem that uses repetition…repeat a word, or phrase…even repeat an image, perhaps slightly changing or enlarging it from stanza to stanza, to alter its meaning.
Yearning for time to open pages
Disappear inside bound papered
Walls, fort of words, escape…book.
Longing for printed lines that renew
Refresh mood, mental getaway.
Yearning burns for story which
Embraces me, a boon companion…
For ink-profiled characters more
Authentic, 3-dimensional, than
Most real people invested in.
Urgency in longing, yearning…
Time lifts broad tapestried wings
Of blinding hue. Luxury journey
Literary—hands turning dim pages
Shakily—soon will pass from view.
