“Today’s photo prompt reminded me of myself and my brother. While I was and still do always have my nose in a book and my mind adventuring in another world. My brother acted as if books were dangerous. He’d never read one if there was nothing else left on the planet to do! You see, for some of us, words are magic creating a world in our minds and transporting us there. For others, words are just letters on a page that do nothing and so are boring. What does a book of words do for you?”
Pages of Magic
There’s a world within this book
All I see is a load of words
Read it and you’ll see – look
But reading is only for nerds
Look Sarah is the protagonist
What? She’s good at playing tag?
No, she’s the hero, Sis
Reading is such a drag
But can’t you feel the magic
No, I’d rather watch TV
Your lack of imagination is tragic
At least I’d have pictures to see
I love magical written worlds
I don’t see a single spell
It enchants me as the story unfurls
You’re mad in a nutshell
It’s a dust jacket actually
Whatever you say
Just try some adventure and fantasy
Nah, the X-box is free to play
Big sister watched her go and smiled.
She knew her imagination was a gift
Reading for her was exciting and wild
For others books left them miffed
For her reading was contagious
She always yearned for a new story
Others might find it outrageous
Whilst reading she was in her glory
She was glad she could see
The visions a story created
She grinned as her mind was set free
Another magical world awaited
