Angel Sammy with his sweet brother Teddy from TWO SPOILED CATS gave us this beautiful library photo for this weeks poetry challenge. We were not up to the challenge of a "rhyming poem" for the image ~ so made an attempt at a little haiku instead.
Whether in small towns or major cities, our libraries are our treasures. Taking us into new worlds and old, opening our eyes to new possibilities, they are teachers beyond the classrooms. When one learns to read and chooses a lifetime of books for themselves, they have "friends" forever. As always, we were also inspired to share an image of our own neighborhood library, founded by an esteemed Baltimore businessman and philanthropist. It is as extraordinary inside as is its main entrance which we photographed.
