A Book Is...


A Book is...

A whole in your pocket,
a hitchhiker's guide,
a road to time travel,
a ticket to ride.

A bundle of wonder,
a mystery unsolved,
(in which you will soon
be directly involved).

A windfall in lap-land,
a bedside surprise,
a serving of sun,
under rain speckled skies.

Rarely a lemon,
but lemon meringue,
the kit and caboodle,
the entire shebang.

The big enchilada,
the whole ball of wax,
what makes for such happy
insomniacs.
