Reading A Book - Poem by Heather Burns

Yesterday
a book
so tightly
closed.

Everythig
so vague
a secret.

Today
somehow
the book
magically
opened.

There
befo re
my eyes
appeared
a clear
script.

The
writing
so
liquid.

    This reminds me of how books bring things to life for me. I've loved reading since I was a child. My fav stanza: ...Everythig
    so vague
    a secret...
