Welcome to Thursday Inspiration! This is my weekly prompt post and hopefully it will inspire you to write something creative, perhaps a poem or a piece of flash fiction. If you’d like to share your writing with the community, please indulge me and tag your post with #p0eticlicense and/or #lightm0tifs, and of course link back if you wish. I will try to visit everyone who participates. 🙂
This week’s theme is book and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “Wonderful World” recorded by Sam Cooke in 1960:
Don’t know much about history
Don’t know much biology
Don’t know much about a science book
Don’t know much about the french I took
The Book of Only Look!
Look, books …
…. and the books looked!
So did l!
There were books everywhere,
Everywhere you looked,
Books, booking and booked!
That’s millions of words, trillions of words,
The bookish one thought,
……. then said … books, words, look!
I did, l looked, at the books…
…taking them all in,
lining the shelving!
Look, books, Took!
By hook or crook,
… don’t forget gobbledygook,
Don’t take, just took,
Quick look at books, that shake, No shook,
Shook, the nooks and the crooks,
That the books,
Balance on or is it in?
Books, words, took, look, shook!
So many books, so many words,
From ceiling to floor, and more,
… from back there to front door!
Words, pages, books,
Look, take not took, but take stock, not stook, or stuck, but shook!
So many books,
Need healthy bank book!
.. till then, can only look, not take, nor took, nor shake nor shook,
Just look at books!
