Saved by the book. #micropoetry

Twenty word Tuesday

Robbed of pleasure
Clasped in isolation
A sequestered soul
Searching pages caressed in imagination
Ecstasy within adventure
Mystery, mapping relief.

      I read a bit slow because it’s the last thing I do at night and I often just get through a chapter/2 or a few pages but I get through a number as well

    I’ve been reading ‘fun’ murder mysteries.
    Not ‘bonnet rippers’… just puzzles to solve.
    Paperbacks about 300 pages or so. Between everything else 😉
