Poetry Friday: Ghosties and Monsters

Thank you Karen at Karen Edmisten* for hosting all the poetry goodness in the world this Friday.

Have you read everyone’s contributions to what monsters fear at Today’s Little Ditty?So many clever ideas! And the prompt helped me solved one of my #inktober2019 and #poemtober2019 words: ghosts.


book ghosties
eat words of the page
silverfish

As a librarian, I HATED finding silverfish visiting the books. They so love the starchy and sugary dextrin found in the book paste.

What do they fear? Visit the Padlet created by Michelle.

How is next week November? Stay tuned for the New Year (and ahem, new decade) Postcard announcement.

    As a retired teacher librarian, I feel your pain. I enjoyed your poem here and on the padlet. I must admit that I never went after silverfish with tweezers.

  2. I did not expect those silverfish–great fearsome monster!

    So Jone did you ever find a way to chase away the book ghosties? I agree with others that this was clever.

    Clever indeed! Hope those book ghosties stay far, far away!

    “Book ghosties—yes! I never caught them in the act, but those “harmless” bug monsters destroyed a blackout poetry journal I was keeping. 😦 Love your poem on the padlet, Jone!

  6. So clever! Those scary librarians 🙂
