Take a gander, if you’d like, and let me know what you think. Happy weekend; stay creative.
He rode slowly and haughtily toward the beast; his approach was strewn with pride at felling such a mighty animal. The others rode the clearing, picking off the last of the exhausted herd, and he reached the animal as it writhed its last frenetic movements. The beast lay dying, an arrow through its chest, drawing its last breaths. He watched the king dismount and walk toward him with knife drawn. His last view consisted of the king, knife in hand, approaching him and drawing the glistening blade across his neck, thus finishing the job. The hunt was over, and the men cheered with pride at their success.
The camp was ripe with the talk of the day; bold stories intermixed with tall fables resounded over the group, and each man enjoyed his share of the well cooked venison. The fires simmered and the king made his rounds with the men, hearing each man’s tale with a warm smile and a ready ear.
If you’ve read a Library Lusting post before, and also lust after the quiet solace and beauty that book filled spaces provide, then you’ll know that I am an appreciator of A., books, and B., sunshine. They just work. This week’s space provides ample amounts of both, and throws in a sizable work space to boot. One could not only get their read on, but also their write. This, friends, is a book lover’s room. Enjoy!
It’s kind of hard to beat this room. With its open, airy vibe and abundant sunshine, this space is tops. Throw in the richness of the wood, the robust desk front and center, and the eyeful of books, and you have the ideal room for a true book lover (or writer). And the globe? C’mon…that’s the cherry on top. This is most definitely a book lover’s room.
By no means do I attempt to rhyme when I write poetry. Most of my work is a collective of words and sentences, with no regard to traditional poetic structures. So today’s poem was a fun little exercise in motivation; the motivation to think outside the box and experiment with another way to write, and to just write something that would motivate the hell out of me to get off of my ass! Enjoy….and if you’re on your ass, get off of it!
