Only Reading

why don’t I spend my time
on reading today?
figuring out
what others have to say?

reading is one remedy
which would give me
topics and words to write
picking one from various genres
might become todays delight

as far as I am concerned
no topic seems to have
engrossed my mind
lately, nothing has affected me
much to give me a hard time

going through some inspiring words
always have given me a hit
I have always end up writing
something my mind agrees to and fits

because reading is the best gift
one explores different scenarios and lands
while in one place she sits

Yesterday night went writing few words which completely did not satisfy me. The rainy weather today produced these words.

  1. Ah! Reading is always fun and we can travel the world, feel the scenarios. Just by sitting at one place.
    Moreover, a writer can get new words and phrases that help him/her in writing his/her new book, new articles, new poem etc. 💝

  2. Reading is a wonderful art. It opens mind to levels we can’t image. Hence reading has always been more favourite to me than writing. You have captured the dilemma of a writer quite well and by reading you came out quite well in this poem 👌
