Sitting alone
  among my books,
  growing old within myself

A memory came back
  its reflection dim,
  as I lifted one down from the shelf

Sitting alone
  among my books,
  I remembered—then remembered again

More than just words
  are on those pages I wrote,
  it’s my lifetime of searching—in print

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2015)
