Today's poem is brought to you by the lovely Nandhini from @books_under_moonlight
~ Just one more Chapter ~
Ah! Look! There’s a new book.
Is it a rebel, a warrior or a magical dragon?
Reviews and ratings and stars, I jump into the wagon.
I stare and glare and think and think some more
Of castles and magic, creatures mighty; and ancient lore.
Oh the dust jacket and gosh that splash of colour!
I stare starry eyed at it over and over
“Will you be mine?” I wonder…
Reality pokes its ugly head
An hour rolls by,
Accidentally, Un<intentionally> as I walk by,
A sliver of glorious green or royal red or beautiful blue
Catch my eyes and they fall on the book
Lying right there in a cozy nook…
“Don’t you want to be mine?”
I can hear, I assure you!
the faint hum of its pages.
As my hands move towards the pages of the epilogue
The harsh hands of the clock
waves at me and summons me
To attend to that mountainous pile of chores
Alas, My love, I shall come back to you!
I close the book and sigh
As the grind of the day comes to a close and
Night replaces light,
That beautiful little book
Beckons me back to explore its depths
I settle down to breathe in that heady scent,
That only a book can offer
And prepare myself for a mighty adventure
I promise, Just One more Chapter…
