    I journeyed to the library today
    Because the hidden delights in a book
    Have always been where my passions lay
    So, I searched to find a covered treasure
    For a weighty tome~~I'd comb to measure
    A certain, engulfing literary womb~~So my life could bloom
    And would my lonely heart enrapture~~And my needy mind, capture....

    So, I walked and scanned EVERY silent aisle
    Even perused each forgotten, stacked pile
    Earnestly looking for my printed mate
    And just when I grew tired, omniscient Fate
    Literally toppled a thick spine upon my head!
    And, so, with curiosity fed
    I proceeded to check it out
    Feeling divinely led
    To digest this mysteriously discovered text
    My mind and heart anxious to see what came next...

    But, when I arrived at the desk with my patron's card in hand
    And other eyes, upon the title panned
    The librarian informed me that, with my choice, there was an error
    *NO! My heart suddenly filled with terror!*
    But she quickly explained that THIS book was being taken out of circulation
    Therefore, I couldn't have it as a LOAN
    But I could purchase it for a small donation
    So I eagerly paid its nominal fee
    And once again, my heart swelled with glee
    As I gingerly took it home
    And gently wiped it clean of all its accumulated, neglected dust
    Then, a cup of relaxing tea was an end-of-the-day must
    As I took a hot, bubbly bath
    Then, with my book in my arms
    I trekked a direct path
    To my awaiting bed~~~~FINALLY, I'd get to see what it said!.....

    And, OH! I can't tell you the JOYS my eyes read!
    But, I CAN share, at least, this:
    That my mind, heart, and soul were encapsulated!
    For the beautiful epic in my book
    Was a private gift, just for me, perfecty pearled
    A love story revealed as each page unfurled

    Now, I take it with me everywhere I go
    For this book is the peace-at-last home
    I thought my heart would never know
    And to think, it's all mine to KEEP!
    All because I took a blind-trust, faith-filled leap.

    SPECIAL EDITION, indeed

    O, such power in your words...as you urge each step-by-step one takes...on this journey you've orchestrated...in relating your momentous outing, while treasure hunting...discovering what lay beneath, between, and in the seams of yesterday's today. NICE way to say, I BOUGHT A BOOK.:)

    wonderfully done.
