The Friday 56

Doing it after VERY LONG!

*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader
(If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
 *Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It's that simple.

The Ghost, The Mountain (poem)

Where is he? Now that the woods
are quiet, and the snow,
April-thawed, has carved a bit
more from the rock
Now that the grass has spiked

Where is the young black man
in his freshly bought
jacket and urban shoes

the city kid who loves birds?

While I love the title, the story isn't one that would grab my attention. I hope you enjoyed/are enjoying it. I'd love for you and your readers to check out mine...

This is beautiful. I'm not sure I'd want to read the book but I very much enjoyed the 56!

A lovely choice. I'm curious about the cover and how it relates to what's inside.

Such a humble and somber poem, yet so very powerful.
