In the Library

It's a quiet place,
but it speaks to me.
When I was little,
time in the library was
an adult privilege, 
one I first enjoyed
when I got my very own
library card, when 
I was five or six.
A few months ago,
I got a card for the Herron
School of Art Library.
I felt the way I did when
I got my first card.
The words and the pictures
showing the artists' 
works and their lives
are all murmuring ...
inviting me into their world,
helping me to shape my own.
And this simple arrangement 
on a side table added
to the welcome.

Pretty and tranquil in there.

I think the composition of the pot and twigs is just elegant.
