Patchwork Quilt

LILAC SECAUR

A book is a patchwork quilt
of characters and settings
knitted together
by imagination and ink.

A book is a splash of genius,
a bubbling pot of thoughts.
It holds ideas in its bucket
only to slosh them onto me.

A book is a chance to travel
into a portal of emotion.
I read because the world
can make me feel
like I’m the last leaf to fall.
