The hard cover story waiting to be read. As I open the heavy book the bright pages blind me my eyes find clarity through my glasses my eyes readjust to the non-fiction. Each word resonates an emotion in me. Happiness. Love. Peace. The pages begin to unfold Individually so thin so light But yet together create a lifetime. Each chapter of this coiled non-fiction is a surprise. As I read on I do not know what to expect. Deaths Births Smiles The thick binding an accumulation of all the chapters touching. Spanish songs vibrate in my heart. French foods indulge my eyes. Italian images invite me. As I lay reading the non-fiction I realize that those words Pages Chapters And binding Are my story The ever so exciting book that I hope to continue writing.
