[Poetry Friday] Selected Prose from “Pillow Thoughts”

You are a story, a home, a wolf that howls in the night.


Fats here.

I would like to welcome the long (Memorial Day!) weekend by sharing selected prose from Courtney Peppernell’s Pillow Thoughts. This book was another random discovery that I came across while processing holds for our patrons. (Those are always good times!) The writing on the back cover describes what this collection is about:


Pillow Thoughts is a collection of poetry and prose about heartbreak, love, and raw emotions.

It is divided into sections to read when you feel you need them most.

Make a cup of tea and let yourself feel.

Many thanks to Margaret at Reflections on the Teche for hosting Poetry Friday round-up this week!

Fats is the Assistant Manager for Circulation Services at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, Ohio. She considers herself a reader of all sorts, although she needs to work on her non-fiction reading. Fats likes a good mystery but is not too fond of thrillers. She takes book hoarding seriously and enjoys collecting bookmarks and tote bags. When she is not reading, Fats likes to shop pet apparel for her cat Penny (who absolutely loathes it).

    This looks and sounds lovely, Fats. I’m reading a book that holds some good thoughts, too, “How Lovely The Ruins, Inspirational poems and words for difficult times.” I’m taking my time, but have enjoyed it very much. Thanks for sharing “Pillow Thoughts”!

    That second piece would be wonderful shared as a reading at a wedding with the verbs changed to “I hope you have found…” or even better, “You have found…”


  6. That second poem is gorgeous, thanks for sharing “Pillow Thoughts” Fats!
