Grave Stone Binder

 

They lay there side by side

Each one dated upon a time line,

The names seldom repeating,

Unless cloned in duplication.

 

The brilliant white fades with the dust

Particles that cements them to rigid positions

That until opened, or in the spring’s library

House cleaning reveals the title binder.

 

Like a horizontal cemetery of dead authors,

This is more a vertical mortuary for readers.

Where the pages come alive in sparking eyes

That germinate thoughts into the womb of the mind.

 

It is the reincarnation of the author,

Baring time’s ghost play of graven words

Sharing the writer’s ancestral Uni-Verse

That sprouts alive generation seeded thoughts

In mental gardens of perpetuity of antiquity.
