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.


-Gilda Patricia

    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!


    1. Thank you very much for your ULTRA kind nomination. I always love reading your positive and thought provoking blog. I will participate if I have the chance. Thanks again!!
