I Sit Quietly

Library talks like afternoon

Fall leaves rustle delight

Spatter talk, librarian teaching

Her positions of books

Music of copy machine,

Sings like zither, harp, accordian

Designed in bellows muffeled,

Sally into THE HELP JESUS

WISDOM Buddha, some 500

Years before, books name

Andrew Wyatt, Allen Ginsberg

William Shakespeare; librarian

Chatter near the door, direction

To painted reality, whispered dreams,

Pillow, or dagger, saw, or brush.

I was a University and community college instructor. I am an ordinary man writing for artistic reasons, and simple taste-- blogs are an answer to high priced self-publishing. Walt Whitman had to print his 1000 paper books himself because in 1855 poetry did not sell. It does not sell now unless you have a Pulitzer Prize, and even then, the poet usually makes a living in other ways than poetry. In all ages there have been writers writing out of their own reasons. I am an older man with fewer computer skills than my daughter. Blogs let me reach an audience missed by books, and I stand a better chance to reach a wider audience. My two self-published books, Winter from Spring, and Meditations on Gratitude, Charles E Taylor, MFA, Xlibris.com and a third coming out sometime next year, through The Book Patch: For Patty Brown... satisfy needs to hold books, and, yet, still read as electronic books which are easier to produce than paper books. The blog allowed me to write a compendium of my writing. I can combine composition with production. Wordpress provides word processing with production. When the writer finishes writing they press publish and then a finished piece. I’m happy to present to you a slice of my personal writing. Do enjoy what you read!
