Good Books Are Dreams Come True

I journey often to faraway places
many anew
others revisited
spent with treasured friends
rare and unique—
life is clever with good friends around us

First-run journeys take me like a child
perhaps across rustic bridges
perhaps beyond orchard ways
likely to places to be seen with new eyes

Favorite books are second homes
built from the beauty of artists’ souls
of colorful worlds for us to live in when we choose to

Good books stir me like lovers in the night
with their generous foreplay
tickling me to roller-coaster climaxes
and breathless denouements

Love me with a good book’s
and soft caresses of purpose
or not at all
