An Afternoon At Barnes and Noble

"Books give a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything" - Plato

It seemed only right to start todays blog post with an honest quote about books and the power they hold. Books are a great way to escape reality, to tap into our imaginative minds and to gain knowledge about anything and everything. My husband and I both love to read so we went to our local Barnes and Noble to spend the afternoon flipping through the pages of their massive selection of reading material.

Amongst all of the books I picked up three poetic jems:

The literary work of poetry has always been something that's fascinated me. I remember being taught poetry, the different styles of poetry and how to compose a proper poem in my English class. When it came to poetic assignments I aced each one, guess my love and understanding for it came kind of natural.

"Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words" - Robert Frost

I love how expressive poetry can be, the way one can articulate their feelings into beautiful words that flow together with rhythm and genuine emotion. Poetry touches my heart and soul!! There was a point in time where I was so captivated by poetry I'd write any chance I'd get, however these days I find myself reading it instead of writing it.

That afternoon spent in the bookstore inspired me to begin writing poetry again, perhaps it's time I find my way back to expressing myself through rhythmic writing as I once did. Who knows, maybe I'll share my own personal poetry with you some day.

Thank you for reading todays post. Until next time friends, take care!
