In The Library

Immersing myself into the realm of its existence
Like time travel taking off,  I can go  anywhere
At times I read its books, I’m in state of ebullience
My imagination transcends  far beyond any frontier
In my journey, I’ll never be  a glum book lover and explorer

My skills and vicarious experiences effloresce
Being  inspired, uplifted...I feel others’ stories and sentiment
In  solitude, I also find contentment and happiness
As reading  enthuses...manipulates the intensity of my temperament
So, I bask in the library for more knowledge and sense of fulfillment

A beautiful serene poem. And you've taught me a new English word. But I must ask you are? What a shocking, horrendous incident for your beloved city. I hope you and your friends and family are well and unharmed. My family in-law live in Phayao so they are well. Chok Dee Krap.

Sawatdika my very dear friend, Sir Scott! Kapkoun ka mak mak na ka :))) Your precious time reading my humble work and your encouraging comments are very much appreciated. By the way, would you mind telling me what word is it, sir?;))) Thank you so much as well for asking me how I am. With God's mercy, my loving family(mom & cousin),my lovin friends and I were safe when this horrible incident happened. We live in BKK proper but thanks God, we're quite far from the place. In fact I was out of city for a couple of days and just came back yesterday from educ. trip. I'm glad your in-laws were safe and very far. How about you? Sabai di mai na ka? Hope so (sabai di). Again, Kapkoun ka na ka. Many hugs na ka.

Thank you so much for appreciating my 3 humble poems my dearest sis and for loving my poetry, Hope I'm really worthy enough to be one of your faves poet. Thank you so much for your great encouragement and support. Honestly, most of the time, I'm not confident in my work. I’m also a shy person. ‘ Though I’ve tried my best; still, I got the feeling that my best wasn’t good enough esp. on those 3 poems. So, once again, thank you, thank you so much for your untiring support,encouragement etc. It means a lot to me. I hope that your daughter will also like my poem my loving sis.

I love how you captured the essence of the topic, the joy of being in that library for joy's sake! I think if you try easier one syllable word rhymes at the end, it will be easier for you to write them! anyway, I sure do like this , my friend!

Thank you so much my very dear friend, Andrea. I think so my dearest friend, but it was difficult for me to find some easier word which rhymes especially the effloresce. I'll try to think again and edit tomorrow if I've enough time after my aerobic class. God bless you. TYTYSSM! Many hugs
