I am a book-juggler; I very rarely read just one at a time. Right now, I have a kidlit book, an adult novel, two personal growth books, and two professional books all in various stages of being read. My Muse decided that today's Slice will be reader's responses in verse to three of the books.
The Book of Longings by Sue Monk Kidd
If one is bereft of longings
No hopes, no dreams
No inner voice straining to be heard
Is one truly alive?
The Elephant's Girl by Celesta Rimington
What wisdom lies
in an elephant's eyes?
Ghosts don't just say "Boo!"--
they can be helpful, too.
Families are found in the heart.
Think Like a Monk by Jay Shetty
Exposing my negativity
Excavating my fears
Exploring my intentions
This is bibliotherapy.
Now I am thinking this might be fun for our students, too...
