Take a closer look.
Behind the dusty facades,
magical worlds unfold.
Flecks of dust dance in slanted rays.
Light illuminates slices of the interior,
moving from left to right.
This magical world exists
undisturbed and in silence.
Hold your breath.
Be truly present.
You will hear the faint whispers from faraway.
They bear witness of extraordinary happenings.
Pain. Sorrow. Death. Birth. Joy. Love.
Go ahead, step inside.
Feel the wooden floor creak beneath your soles.
Run your fingers over the spines, holding worlds together,
until you make your choice.
Take a closer look,
and delve into a magical world.
