A collection of pages

Words typed and pages bound

Merely a few bits of tree

But much more than that

A gateway, a window, a door

An escape from what surrounds us

A pathway, a wardrobe,

A yellow brick road

A slip and a fall down the rabbit hole

A high sea adventure,

Sword fighting with pirates

A search for a giant white whale

A diary of a child ruthlessly hunted

An end of the sidewalk

Many new worlds to discover

The hound hunting the fox

A cuckoo's nest

And a mockingbird dead on the ground

50 shades of grey

and the color purple

A rainbow that connects us to earth

Under the covers

a child sits captured

lost in a world new.
