Where I like to read

For Poets United Midweek Motif – Reading Fiction.

Where I like to read
Up in a tree, perched firmly in the nest
Formed by branches of the obliging tree.
Or in the midst of my garden shaded by
Tomatoes and running green beans.
Or in bed late at night while my husband sleeps,
The Kindle turned on lowlow light to not disturb him.
Walking every day, in snow or rain or heat,
Ear buds firmly in my ears as I listen to Audible.
Sitting at the table slurping soup –
The faster I read the faster I slurp,
Book propped in front of me
Salt and pepper shakers holding up my book.
Engineering, math, physics?  I used to.
The news? Nope
Politics? Nope nope
Disasters? Nope nope and nope.

    I see these places loud and clear, and I know you’re reading fiction there!

    It’s wonderful reading up in a tree. I read mostly in bed – looooooong evenings, sometimes till late. I go through a lot of books every week, I keep the library hopping bringing them in for me.

    Bed is good but sleep does interfere so snuggled in a lounge chair is better with drink and snacks close at hand!

      I just wake up and can’t get back to sleep. So I stay in bed until I fall back asleep drooping my Kindle on my face. I like snuggling while reading. Don’t need snacks at 3:00 am

      I have always read and enjoyed fiction, ever since I was three. I get tired of reality. Reality can be so boring or painful at time.

    Never enough time to read all that we like, up a tree or in the garden. I love sitting beside you reading!

    I’ve gotten to the place where reading a good book over a meal (I eat alone) is absolutely essential to my well-being.
