The world may demand

A firm grip on reality

While the dreamers

See magic everywhere

Reality may impose

Constructs to guide our vision

While the thinkers

Shrug off those chains

Constructs define roles

Placing us upon a stepladder

While the visionaries

Look through these falsehoods

Thought and wisdom

And the vision

Of future yet to be

Are found by those who seek

Losing themselves

Within the perfume

Of printed pages

Worshipping in churches

With shelves stretching

To heaven itself

The bookworm

Slides between realities

Finding and creating

New worlds

With every

Turn of the page – Caroline A. Slee

The Bookworm
