So, you love books?

 

Written for World Book Day 2020

Books have a smell

of the stories they hold

characters’ struggles, triumphs

broken dreams

other peoples’ fingers

turning the pages

smoke in their homes

dried tears on the leaves

a smell of ink long dry

as unique as you,

as your own story.
