A long journey to become an author.
Days of soul searching and hard work.
The words need to be enticing and clear.
A bridge to the reader’s heart.

A movie camera sweeps across scenes.
So does a book’s point of view.
One point of view shows one angle.
Changing points of view can reveal many more.

To be lost in a book is truly a gift.
An escape from the mundane and boring.
A visit to far away places.
An adventure to open your mind’s eye.

Once completed, a book is a treasure.
A symbol of an author’s hopes and dreams.
A confectioner’s delight to be tasted and savored.
To be remembered by many or just a few.

    A book can be better than what gets put on a movie screen – the imagination while reading can trump most of them! 🙂

    I agree. A movie is limited by the camera. Reading a book can open unlimited possibilities.
