Poem: And He Died Silently

that's what my tombstone should have said
that's all i ever wanted

to live quietly
to die quietly
to let life
wash over me
pass over me

and then finish
without fanfare
without eulogy
without recognition

new blog, post #1

The title of this blog comes from a quote from C.S. Lewis:

"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. "
This blog is dedicated to literature and the vibrancy that it adds to life and to the way that it enhances our everyday experiences.  In it you'll find original pieces, quotes, book reviews, and other literary related miscellanea.
