A Book?

A Book Is

A book is a journey of ten thousand words –
Or something of that sort.

A good writer knows less is more
And so uses words the common man can understand.

A good reader can see the message
That comes from somewhere beyond the pen.

I love a good book, one with a sound plot
And lots of problems to solve.

What clever souls those writers are
Who explore the dim, dark corners of our fears.

What clever souls those writers are
Who shape the thoughts that carry far beyond the day.

A book is a fortune bound in paper –
And now electric hieroglyphs are

Waiting to waken a sleeping mind
And kindle a common flame.

Have a great day and look for the sunny side! Love, Terry
