“Un’shelf’ish,” solo renga

allure to curl up
on a bookish day; either
too hot or rainy

divine alone time until
eyelids flutter; close for sleep

on the shelf color
d’versity of many themes
for all interests

    1. I’m not sure what book I was reading then… as I’ve usually got at least two or three going at once.
      I just finished another one yesterday. A fun murder mystery with a crossword too – Turns out there is a series by Parnell Hall about the Puzzle Lady. 😀
