The Places you go #reading #nablopomo #poetry


books

If you could be a character

from any time in history

who would you be?

Would you drive elephants

over the Pyrenees?

Would you a beautiful woman be

running a powerful country?

*

Would you write of grand and small

of rivers boats and boys

perform in city’s hall

travel the world to see it all

would photography be your call

of waters mighty fall

Yosemite grandeur’s tall

*

Ride a ship deep into space

a child’s literary hero

though none knows your face

chart a journey to a distant place

under water worlds that none can trace

a man, a woman in a race

around the globe in 80 days

*

All the things you see

the characters as one

“take not that path,” you plead

as you endeavor books to read

fingers, eyes do lead

never enough stories to feed

the imagination’s greed

The suggested prompt for Nablopomo today is what character would you be? As an avid reader since I was a young child, I would say the character in the book I am presently reading (historical or fictional). What about you. Who would you be?
