Fandango’s Friday Flashback — August 21

I am almost at the one year anniversary of my blog! Maybe one more month and I can actually go back to the specific date and repost. https://fivedotoh.com/2020/08/21/fandangos-friday-flashback-august-21/

For now I will look for something, maybe on the 21st of another month.

Books…

My thoughts on books…

I wrote four and published them for children.

I love to read, or used to love it, and hoping that with the new book I won last week that I regain my love. I never lost it, just lost the motivation to sit and read and concentrate on what I was reading. I think the concentration is key. Not that it has to be for intellectual knowledge, but just so I don’t have to reread the same page over and over…

I just got a story published in two magazines!

I write every day and hope to have more books published! Non-fiction and fiction for children.

Books 

White pages yellowing 

Hard covers softening 

Words melding together 

Offer 

Escape 

Experiences 

Entertainment 

Enlightenment 

Bright laminated pages 

Bright white screen 

Technology doesn’t print 

Less to hold 

But for some 

Holding a book is part of the 

Offering  

Escape 

Experiences 

Entertainment 

Enlightenment 

In bed 

At the beach 

In the yard 

Alone 

Together 

Bound like pages in a book

  1. Yes! The feel of a book in your hands can’t compare to a kindle or other e-reader! I must be able to turn the page, feel the edge of the paper, savor the words without the eye strain of technology! Your poem captured it beautifully!
