Into The Authors World Tanka.

I opened the book,

Drawn into the author’s world,

Taken to that place

Where my world was different,

And was now part of her world.

    Books can be so engaging . I don’t read much these days but maybe I should .., they say reading is good for the mind ! I have a reading app on my iPod ... maybe I should use it more .

    It’s good to escape sometimes into another world , like in a book .

    Nice read , Andy 🙂

        A good book transports us to another world as we read it. A world far removed from the mundane world we live in. Becoming involved in the story releases us from our experiences in the human world, if only for a while, it can be a relief. Through the book we melt into the story and become part of the writer's world and you have captured that element so finely in this excellently penned Tanka, Andy and complemented it with an excellent video. Music can have the same effect on the listener as a book has on a reader. It is like a holiday to escape the world we live in, even if it's only for a little while. Wonderful write, succinct and to the point! Thank you for sharing, Andy...

          They surely can take us aways from ourselves Marie.
          Thank you for your kind words.

            Reading a good book is a ‘gift that keeps on giving’. Reading is my favorite pastime. Thank you for sharing your wonderful poem.
