“Tonight, I want each and every one of you to pen down the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about a hidden realm.”


All around me is reality

the hum of a washing machine

in the den CNN

ambulance screaming urgently

blocks away, phone rings

importantly, a number I

don’t recognize, let it ring…

Reality is just too real

so I escape to a hidden land

close at hand yet unseen

between the pages of a book.

And everything fades away

I’m in another place

and even after the book is closed

this hidden realm is slow

to fade, stays arrayed in my mind.

One foot in reality

and one foot left behind.

    There is just so much happening in these dark times 😦 and we see it almost everyday on the news, I can imagine how most of us would want to distract ourselves to keep our sanity intact. Hope and prayers for peace. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support.

    Lots of love,

  4. Aren’t we lucky? To have so many place to visit when things get too rough? I wouldn’t know what my life would be, if I couldn’t live some moments “between the pages of a book.”

    I approve of this method of escape. It’s a personal favorite of mine as well.


  7. Oh yes that is how I feel when I am lost in a book….’One foot in reality and one foot left behind.’ Perfectly penned for the prompt this week!

    I think all good books are like that as we get so absorbed we become part of the book, a witness to what we are reading. Beautifully written.
