Book Lover-Kaulayaw

Beautifully packaged,

In bright-colored jackets,

Waiting for me,

Waiting for me.

 

Good books,

Never pressure,

Or push me,

To open their pages.

 

And when I’m ready,

I read as fast and as much,

As I choose!

Gracious books.

 

So selflessly giving,

A story,

At my fingertips,

Awaiting my perusal.

 

Revealing richness, depth,

Mystery, secrets, 

Beauty, love,

And wisdom untold.

 

Nothing withheld,

As my interest,

And curiosity peak,

Becoming fully engaged;

 

Unfazed by daily distractions,

Satiated and satisfied,

Buried deep,

Within the pages.

    1. Yes, definitely reading less since entering the “blogosphere,” in May. Thankfully a local summer reading club introduced me to “The Invention of Wings,” by Sue Monk Kidd. Am thoroughly enjoying…how it ends, we shall see!
