Lines tell stories
Lines tell stories.
Stories that are made up of twenty-six letters
Flipping and flopping are words that we can make out of twenty-six letters
Have you ever stopped to think? Think about those books
Think about those poems
The poems that make you cry
The poems that make you laugh
The poems that make you chuckle
How minute a number seems when not engrossed in our everyday life of reading
When numbers such as infinity take such an overwhelming fear of never
Twenty-six letters is all it took to create history
To create myths and legends
To create heartache, tears, yearning.
How pertinent it is to a writer
To realize that with words come emotions
Wounded words of wisdom that may make a child feel no fear
Feel as though home may not be so far away
Feel as safe as they ever could be with just twenty-six letters.
Magic and dragons and wizards and witches
Friends and family and enemies and true-loves
The biggest and most magnificent imagination a young reader holds in the chest of his mind.
A curled up ball of a human in a corner
With a book
Is what is beautiful.
And all this
With just twenty-six letters.
