always, always books have meant so much to me I like the weight of a book my hands caressing the pages they have taken me to many far off places I have been to France Italy, Japan the North Pole and deep dark Africa and many other countries of earth I have walked rainforests walked cobbled streets climbed high mountains felt the Sahara heat seen all the blue oceans and gathered sea shells have listened to the oceans whisper with their rolling waves oh, all of nature's wonders can be found in books all the creatures of earth and every kind of bird and flower and all things green on pages if you look I have journeyed across Canada from ocean, to ocean, to ocean I have gone on a vision quest meditated with monks in their mountain temples stood on a mountain cliff with the wind in my hair rode a unicorn white horse have researched poets of old and the great art masters researched their histories and work and so much more ... and I never left home except in my mind_ _______________________ March 23, 2022 (Edit of a short poem) Poetry/Free Verse/always books Copyright Protected, ID 03-1441-794-23 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Written for the Standard contest, A Brian Strand 1095 sponsor, Brian Strand, NA, Judged 03/25/2022

Well said! Perhaps books highlight the milestones of previous lives, but as I age, turning the pages becomes a challenge! Aloha!

Stunningly beautiful writing, my friend. I, too, discovered books in my childhood and they have been my source of every emotion throughout my lifetime. Books... Yes! A resounding YES! A FAVE. I nominate this for P.O.T.D.!
