beautiful used books

beautiful used books
from different places
room needed at a library
for current books and
spaces redesigned
or someone moved and
passed along a few books
for others to discover
not really “discarded”
another way to bless
and share

and books
continue their journey
today

reading memoirs

reading memoirs
and then the view
outside today
