These Imaginary Fictional Men




Spending time with worthy books
Is having conversation with wise men
It's like these men come to talk
across centuries
across continents
across languages
across time-space
To share their knowledge
To share their thoughts
And we like a sponge absorb

These books tell me stories
Of far-away mountains and seas
Of seductive women and eternal love
Of ruthless Kings and mighty rulers
Of Sci-fi future and stone age past

Each page each line teaches me
Like a teacher of infinite wisdom
I come to know men and society
And acute observation of behavior

These imaginary fictional men
Become my companions
Like real people they live in my head
With their stories and emotions.

What I realise is the mistake I made of not creating a collection of books.

Well said... ! Any book lover will relate to this...
I have even cried for characters in few of my fictional books!
Lol..! :D

and i am surprised with your comment on my blog about spirituality..
do i have to be a part of church to follow the "true" teachings of christ...
unfortunately, infact, the church distorts most of it... and always has, through centuries..

I am about to write a post with one such example...
anyways... I was surprised becoz that question came from you!
:)
isnt spirituality beyond the religious borders...?
Isnt the message of all religions one and the same, in just different words?
and.. moreover.. I believe yeshua is my guru..but in the true spiritual sense..
got nothing to do with the modern idea of "christianity" and non- christian!
Hope you got me! :) i rambled on.. but all in good faith!

:)take care!

I love this poem! So true! I get so involved in the books I read; it is a lot like having real friends in these characters we read about. The books themselves are often my friends as well. In fact, there have been many days when a book was my only friend. Love it, great work!
