Would they ever?

Finding her rainbows between the clouds,

Hiding behind their covers,

With those easy to reads, initially,

Graduating into scary voluminous copies, later,

A whole new world,

Far away from chaos of reality,

Witnessing a battle of wits by one,

Dabbling of adventures by another,

Venturing into magical mysteries,

Finding solace in make believe incantations,

A tad sad when volumes exhausted,

Anticipation soaring awaiting the next,

Modern gadgets undoubtedly make reading easier,

No volumes to lug,

No strain to make space in the backpack,


Would they ever,

Bring the same joy ,

That the scent of fresh ink ,

Wafting through the crisp leaves,

Of a new book,


The inexplicable joy of sifting through the numerous pages,

Finally, the scented satisfaction of completion,

In their numerous pages,

She did find her rainbows eager to showcase their magic,

Waiting to be found between the enigmatic clouds.

  1. These days I use my Kindle to read books and it’s convenient to carry it around, plus I’ve access to more books within it. However, nothing can compare to the bliss of holding an actual paperback or hardcover.
