Written for the 12/29/13 prompt at Poetic Bloomings: write a poem about a book. [NOTE: This poem won a Poetic Bloomings “Beautiful Bloom” award on 1/4/14.]

To Be Continued

My life is a book
of stories and verse,
a place where I look,
for better or worse,
to cherish and scorn
these tales I’ve amassed
on pages well-worn
from trips to the past.
The stories untold
hide on a blank page
with secrets they hold
not yet to engage,
but waiting until
the chapter is born
and the keyboard quill
sees a rose or thorn.
With life as the seed
that blossoms to text,
I can’t wait to read
where this book goes next.
