On The Shelf

On  the Shelf !

Pick up a book, 
Take a look! 
Feel those pages, 
Creamy from ages.

Pick up a book, 
Then get hooked, 
Feel the fear, 
Imagine so the plot comes clear. 

Pick up a book,
Retreat to your nook,
Lose yourself,
Just reach up to that shelf. 

Leave the screen, 
Caress those precious pages of cream,
Delve deep into your mind 
Leave mundane reality far, far, behind. 

Pick up a book, 
Go on take a look !

  7. Kez shows that the book is a great friend, perhaps more than the dog. This way of talking about the book with affection and tenderness, shows the wonderful poet she is.
