Tomes

ghostly voices speaking
long dead dreams
gathered from the ashes

discarded memories
bound in leather
faded by long years

still I read, these old tomes
words from millennia past
I find meaning, enlightenment

forgotten ideas breathe again
becoming consciousness
forming my reality, my truth

these fires once raging
reduced to a candles flame
burn brightly once again

these paths, overgrown by time
traveled once again
through the magic of words

like diamonds in the dust
waiting for new minds, new hearts
to unlock the mysteries

the wisdom of the ancients
these words shine once again
breathing new life

and so shall we live on
our souls echoing for eternity
through our written word
