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.
