They've been my trusty friends
During these days of isolation
While the virus preys on humanity
They have offered consolation.
When I venture out for my errands
I always take one with me
Beneath a spreading monkeypod tree
I open the pages and feel free.
Free to roam about and explore
A carefree adventurous world
Where intriguing people and cultures dwell
And an alternate reality has unfurled.
Far better than a YouTube video
Books illumine the imagination
Lightening the heaviness in the heart
Bringing up hope and inspiration.
