Cleaning the Library

This is a repeat and I apologize to those who’ve read it already, but I just got back from a wonderful (busy) week with my four grandsons. I’ll get back in the swing of things soon.

A Dash of Sunny prompt by Sanaa Rizvi
Write a poem or prose piece which is inspired by your favorite author. It can range from an autobiography to a novel. Whichever strikes your poetic muse. You can also opt and choose your favourite quote and go along with it. The possibilities are endless.



There are rabbits all over the place:
Fiver, Hazel, Bigwig and Buttercup,
poking little noses under the chair,
disturbing dust bunnies sleeping there.
I round them up and stuff them back into their place,
just in time to see Gandalf blowing smoke rings,
oh, so pretty – the colors – the shapes, then I shake myself
and grab a skinny Gollum and a fat little Hobbit
playing riddles and hide and seek,
Gollum hisses at me. What cheek!
But I place them gently in their cubbyhole,
thinking I’ve got the mess licked,
ack, Mrs.Pollifax and Miss Marple are sitting
down and I have no tea ready, so I gently
push them back into the first shelf, then
get back to my dusting, with a longing look
over my shoulder at Mr. Bradbury.


Some of my favorite authors and books:

Watership Down
The Hobbit
Agatha Christie
Ray Bradbury

  1. Oh this is absolutely wonderful ❤❤ an excellent adaptation of your favorite books Debi 😀 thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support.

    Lots of love,


  2. What a delight – like all good treasure it needs to see the light at least twice! I had the sense of excitement of favourite books kept to paw over (pun intended) when we need a little comfort 🙂

  3. This is absolutely delightful — and although I’ve never cared much for those particular authors, I have very similar feelings for the authors I do enjoy. You’ve given us some very real emotions and experiences here.
