One to contemplate much on Bill. Nicely poetic. Words are always my sense of contentment, forever in their various forms, in the way of various devices...and always a pleasure.
Well done.
Have a great weekend.
Best wishes.
RG

Enjoyed your fun free verse with its philosophical reflection and a reference to the answer to the question of the universe according to the Hitchhiker's Guide. Best wishes in the contest!

    The number 42 does have several important connections in different cultures, according to Google.

Hi Bill, to me it sounds that you are as a voracious reader as I am. I've always had s book in my hand at one point during the day. Now to your free verse poem. I liked it a lot. All best, Ulla:)))

Dear Bill, your poem contained great imagery that added colours to the piece. It had a measured flow and well composed with touch of a master. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. And good luck in the contest. Lol!

-I like the artwork and
presentation, Bill.
-You did a good job
with the quotes, and
making them your own
in the poem.
-When I did the book haiku,
I thought of doing one of
these; I have two things
I have thought about putting together.
-Since I was an English teacher, the
last line is my favorite!
-Good job!!

Inventive method here. Paraphrasing of thee I write. 42 is the answer, but the question is up for question--or maybe not if my head is cruising toward a platter. There's much to learn in those tomes, but as long as they are just words consumed by no one, they may as well have never been written.

Bill - A very good entry for the free verse contest. This reminded me of the old rule: Copy one it is plagiarism, copy many it is research. Good fortune in the contest - Jerry

    It's really only plagiarism when I let you believe I wrote it without acknowledging the actual sources. I suppose TS Eliot's "The Wasteland" is the biggest example of borrowing from others to make his own poem.

    Good point
