Time for a Haiku

This week's theme at onedeepbreath is books and reading. I was thinking of going to the library to take photos and get inspiration, but it is a nasty wet day, so my library card is as far as I got:



my library card
- ticket to times and places
far away

Beautiful haiku, Catherine!

I like your bagpipe post below too. (I'm trying to catch up on posts after a weekend gone.) I'm thinking maybe all your guesses are right! :-)

Yes that's the great thing about libraries isn't it?

i LOVE the library. there is no way my budget could afford the many things i want to read about and explore (plus dvd check out for free--can't beat that).

excellent post!

Excellent. I stop resenting the taxes I pay, when I consider some of it goes to feed the library. One of those services that aren't essential to life, to humanity's bare existence, but make life meaningful.

It thrills (surprises) me that libraries, parks, museums and so on still receive any kind of funding.

LOL Library card as a ticket to far away places was wonderful!

public libraries are symbols of civilisation! - a super haiku.

and what a super card - mine looks like a chiropodist's appointment reminder or something like that. still, it's better than those six little pieces of brown cardboard we used to have to take.
