Poetry: “Tsundoku”

A Japanese word that drew me in:

Tsundoku: “Leaving a new book unread after buying it and just letting it pile up with the other unread lonely books in your house.”



Their pages temping
Quite alluring
Pleasant scent to lull you in
Gently touching
Page and covers
Feeling joy with arms so full
Every binding every word
Little worlds
Of friends to meet
Carried home then
Bags quite laden
Lay them out in tidy rows
Come the dust then
Vaned attention
Seeking other things to see
Yet the love
It’s still there
Longing glances to them all
