A Room Full of Words

 

A room full of words

Worlds and wooden structures

A forest of thought

 

Time withers the spine

Slowly yellowing their pages

 

The ink cracks and fades

 

How many words are there in this room?

How many leaves are there in the forest?

 

A temple of the mind

A temple of the sun

 

Dust covers their spines

This place is sacred

Rows of faded paper wait for human touch
