Impression of an Avid Reader.

Dsc02480by Michelle Seyner08 Dec 2013

With my coffee next to me
I am curled up in my chair
reading word for word, page for page,
travelling everywhere.

I've walked the snow of Narnia,
went from Rivendel to Mount Doom,
I've roamed the Seven Kingdoms
and saw the unforgiving sands of Dune.

I perished twice with Robert Frost
and walked behind Macbeth,
I cried with Oscar Wilde in gaol,
enriched by what I've read.

Word for word and page for page
I travel everywhere,
coffee forgotten next to me,
snuggled up in my chair.
