Private Procrastinations

Written for:
 Write Tribe's 55 on Friday's prompt by Vidya Sury and
 For the letter P at ABC Wednesday

The crowded shelves, even the hushed silence is comforting.
The books feel friendly and reassuring.
Parting is such sweet sorrow but books never leave.
Like a faithful friend they cheer her up and take her into her world of fantasy, leading her away from the turmoil within her perturbed heart.
Private procrastinations, peaceful and priceless.


55 fiction is the art of creating a complete short story in exactly 55 words.

Every now and then I come across a post that I absolutely love and  this one for the prompt by Proactive Indian is one of those. Very clever post and truly made me chuckle. 

Warm Regards

  5. I love libraries better because there you only need a library card and the world becomes your oyster and everything and anything becomes possible. Lovely take on the prompt Suzy! ♥

    1. That's true Kathy. And thank goodness for libraries - my son needs to do a lot of research for university and buying his books would cost me an arm and a leg. Glad you liked my post.
