Lest I plummet

First attempt

The bibliophile’s prayer:

Dear Books, I confess my adoration for you! Please deliver me from life’s mundanities into those magical heavens of limitless, ideal fantasies above. Help me maintain my tenuous balance, lest I plummet to reality.

Thanks,
David


Mea culpa!

When I first wrote this piece, I misread one of the prompts! I thought Sammi Coxโ€™s prompt word was โ€œbibliophileโ€ โ€“ but it is โ€œbibliopoleโ€! Ack!

So, Iโ€™ve rewritten this piece accordingly!


Second attempt

The bibliopole’s prayer:

Dear Books, I confess my adoration for you! Please deliver my customers from life’s mundanities into the heavens of limitless, ideal fantasies. May we help them maintain their tenuous balance, lest they plummet earthward.

Thanks,
David

  1. Well done, David. And an excellent recovery. You were not the only one. ๐Ÿ™‚

    But remember, without bibliophiles, bibliopoles have no customers. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Glad you put them both here.
