So Many Books

IMG_2833So Many Books

I don’t “do” lunch, I don’t do sport.
They’re things to which I don’t resort.

For time just seems to be the stuff
of which I never have enough.

As I grow older, and years grow tight,
I find that I would rather write.

So, much as I might like to look
at a favorite once-read book––

Jane Austen or a Bronte sister––
time after time, I must resist her.

So many books are being written
that when the reading bug has bitten

and I find the time to view one,
inevitably, I choose a new one


The Prompt: Second Time Around–Tell us about a book you can read again and again without getting bored — what is it that speaks to you?

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    I don’t know why this posted twice. Sorry if you didn’t notice and came back a second time!!! I didn’t even think it was possible to post twice with the same post.
