“Amongst the Books” – Makati, 09 March 2016

i sit
in this
silence,
book in
hand,
listlessly,
restlessly,
impatiently
turning page
after page.

the air
is still
is calm –
too calm –
is heavy
with the
scent
of books
aging
graying
giving
wisdom and
leisure and
a hand
to hold
in one’s
hour of
hurt.

the air
is still
is quiet…
but my
silent thoughts
rage and
rally and
roar
in my
head;
even as
i turn
each page
i wonder
how the
next chapter
of my
life
will be
written,
how the
next chapter
plays out.
