'Poetry is the synthesis of hyacinths and biscuits.' - Carl Sandburg. . Probably more a synthesis of caffeine and whimsy in my case. The perks of working part time at the moment are definitely not lost on me or the amount of reading and writing I'm (mostly) managing to get done. . . . #carlsandburg #poe#poetryquote #poetrycommunity #poetryisnotdead #coffeetime #amwriting #poetrylove #poetsofinstagram #igpoets #manchesterwriter #writeeveryday #notworking9to5 #cafewriting #poet #whimsy #ialwayssitinthecorner #quoteoftheday

Give me hunger, O you gods that sit and give The world its orders. Give me hunger, pain and want, Shut me out with shame and failure From your doors of gold and fame, Give me your shabbiest, weariest hunger! . . But leave me a little love, A voice to speak to me in the day end, A hand to touch me in the dark room Breaking the long loneliness. In the dusk of day-shapes Blurring the sunset, One little wandering, western star Thrust out from the changing shores of shadow. Let me go to the window, Watch there the day-shapes of dusk And wait and know the coming Of a little love. . . ‘At a Window’ ~ #CarlSandburg , 1878 - 1967

I can't even explain in human words how happy Carl Sandburg makes me. I stumbled onto this copy last year the day before Leif's birthday and it HAD to be his birthday present, not only because I love Carl Sandburg and his American fairy tales and that he wrote these stories for his daughters, but also because rootabagas are what I craved when I was pregnant with him. Christopher still calls us both Rootabaga. 🙇‍♀️📚🌌🚂💗 #rootabaga #whatwerereadingtonight #rootabagastories #rootabagacountry #booksaremylovelanguage #booksarethewaytoagirlsheart #booksaremyspiritanimal #carlsandburg #carlsandburgisagenius #bedtimereads #readingiseverything #fairytales #americanfairytales

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. - Carl Sandburg #photograph #photography #coins #carlsandburg #life #lifequotes #world #unite #peace

The people yes The people will live on. The learning and blundering people will live on.They will be tricked and sold and again sold And go back to the nourishing earth for rootholds, The people so peculiar in renewal and comeback, You can't laugh off their capacity to take it. The mammoth rests between his cyclonic dramas. #carlsandburg

“Let only the young come, Says the sea. Let them kiss my face And hear me. I am the last word And I tell Where storms and stars come from” - hello my friends near and dear ones - does the sea speak to you? What does it say?
