A Childhood Passion

Childhood Passion

I can recall nothing so clearly and vividly from my childhood
as days spent curled up on the couch, surrounded by my treasures
and nights spent curled up under my covers, flashlight in hand
wondering what would happen next
holding my breath
turning a page
whispering
words
words
words
imagining
playing a part
laughing out loud
knowing what would happen next
and reading along anyway, curled under covers, flashlight in hand
as days lazily drifted by, dreaming on the couch, surrounded by my treasures
I created clear and vivid memories of my childhood

  8. My sister said I always had my nose in a book. She was right. She played dolls, I read.
