Tirupathi Chandrupatla


Book at the Finger's Tip


A bound book
Of printed pages
Takes the mind
Thro' unknown stages.

Poetry or prose
Philosophy or math
A deep exploration
Of enchanting delight.

Book of art
Or a cook book
Craft or needle work
It's all excitement.

Book has today
Completely changed
From hard bound
To an e-book.

A dictionary
Or thesaurus
Or an encylopedia
Is all digitized.

Computer's magic
And the web network
Keep holding the key
At the finger's tip.

    I take the art of picking up a book to read any day. When computer crashes
    or is no longer operable then we can reach for the dictionary, thesaurus or
    select an old book of poems or works of art from off the shelves. Hope they
    don't disappear like the dinosaur (smile, just teasing! . A very good thought. (Report) Reply

    Ebooks are great, but true books are beautiful and it would be a great shame if they disappeared. A good write, enjoyed reading. (Report) Reply
