A BOOK IS A TREASURE

 

 

 

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,
While changing points of view reveal more.

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

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

A BOOK IS A TREASURE

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.

WHO AM I?

Who am I?

Who was I?

A man.

A woman.

A doctor.

A soldier.

Maybe a murderer.

Does it matter?

Does it matter anymore?

We all end up the same.

Underground.

Buried.

We end up as skeletons.

But it is how we are

remembered

that matters.

Our memory lingers on.

Remembered as a

doctor,

soldier,

or murderer.

It’s your choice.

SKIN AND BONES

Just a note for us to remember that

we are only skin and bones.

Our lives and bodies are fragile.

We could be whisked away in

a strong wind.

All that will be remembered about

us is what we have left behind.

Therefore, we must be sure—very sure—

that we leave behind something significant.

Whether it’s family, friends, art, or good deeds

it must be significant enough to be remembered.

Start working on it now before it’s too late.
