The Book on Shelf

Updated on March 21, 2017

The book on shelf

Hold me, review throughout,
reflect on my intellect,
but shelf me not,
What use I am in your rack,
Born of purest flowing selfless thoughts,
Let me be the cause, to re-ignite,
I'm your creative right,
Should i alight on those loads of stack?
Pick me up ...

      Thanks devika for reading this poem. It happens to me too. I buy and then I leave it on the shelf. Now , I have started to donate after reading, instead of keeping them on shelf. :-)

      I have books on the shelf and seldom read. It makes me think of how I often read to my son and now books are not remembered as much.

      I enjoy reading. I've always got a book of some kind on the go. I'm glad I found Hubpages too as it has broadened my mind with so many hubs to read.

      The books which enlighten our minds and souls should be picked up as these books are above all the norms. A good book always yearns for the most apt reader. Great combination of words. Wonderful thoughts.

      I used to read a lot, but since I started writing on HP I rarely pick up a book, so many hubs to read. But, you are right, a book on a rack needs to be read. Cheers..
