Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #198 – Under spell

For the visually challenged writer, the photo shows a teenage girl sitting crosslegged on the floor in between the stacks in a library engrossed in a book she’s reading.

Nothing is beneath me with books

The sky is open even with crooks

Novels, serials, heaven and hell

Time passes by in the library

Story just flows and some scary

Open ended and that’s so swell

No rule no urgency just chill

Within the tales time stands still

With books I’m always under spell*
