Losing myself in a book

I love to sit with a book
Open the pages and
Find imagination between
Carefully crafted lines

I love to lie back and read
Tales of worlds that
Only exist fully in the mind
Of a fellow writer

And I love most of all
That when I have finished
Reading a magnificent book
That world still lingers


  1. I love this about reading too. I regret I seldom have time to read this way anymore. I remember one glorious summer as a girl when I discovered a local library. I'd leave with my arms full and return for more. Miss that!

    1. That used to be me too! I have truly made reading a priority in my life. It isn't easy, with all the distractions like Netflix, but it is so rewarding!



I am so grateful for your visit, and a comment would make my day!
