The cover of a book
is a door through a nook
that leads me down adventurous paths
where I’ve never been before.
The last book I read
had many tales to tell
of a maiden who sought adventure
and found true love’s treasure
She was a lass from Singapore
who wanted something more
she desired more of life’s pleasure
and set off on an adventure
She arrived in Dallas
where she met a bloke with class
a cool cowboy with a banjo
who twirled her in a tango.
Our prompt for this week’s Writers Quote Wednesday’s challenge is ‘adventure,’ a word that is synonymous to something exciting.
However, my question is does adventure have to be only when we set off on something grand to escape the ordinary?
If that’s the case then the greater part of our lifetime is lost when we fail to collect our little moments and turn our otherwise mundane life into an adventure of finding deep pleasure in the simple things.

Below is my first just published Poetry Book “Out of the silent breath” which is available on Amazon and Smashwords.
When you buy my book, you support me in an invaluable manner.
I have to say I’m in awe and spellbound by her poetry. She is amazing at describing love and life in her poems. She creates such beautiful images with her words. Truly, she is a talented writer and I’m so excited to have her poetry book and to continue reading through it.
