An Unquiet Mind

Virginia Woolf
catching life by the throat
time and again

An unquiet mind:
Dark star, wings of madness
Tender at the bone

The words, the testament.
Far from the madding crowd
the shallows,
weeping waters

All titles of books from my shelves – everything from “the” book on manic depression (An Unquiet Mind) to volumes on religion, collections of poetry, and my favorite book: Time and Again by Jack Finney. For the Books On Your Shelf prompt at Rhymes With Tao. Also at my poetic place for peace of mind, for creativy, Poets United.  Peace, Amy
