Love ItLove It

I am the quiet voice

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

that in the library is not issued by the librarin

. I am the sound of echos

the sound within canyon walls

bouncing off walls to

echo in tin ears

clutching

earbuds

and lacking a direction

just the lonely sound

of the quiet voice

does the echo leave us alone

or find us instead lonely?

in the quiet voice

we bounce off walls.

Seeking only silence

we seel corners and quiet

in the canyon

with the high walls

and the sound of silence.

      • Granted – some libraries are certainly that. The university library where I finished my career had several different zones that allowed for various levels of noise, including complete silence, but also some where there were very few restrictions. This recognised the fact that different people have different needs, or needs that vary at different times.

        • The librarian of the English School I went to in Bangkok was the most wonderful person. I wrote letters to her until she passed away.

          I read every science fiction book in the library, instead of forcing me to find something else to read she actually talked to me.

          She recommended JRR Tolkien, I have been hooked ever since.

          But she would also talk to me about the books every day in Libary time.

          That is my memory of librarians!
