Poem By Rini Shibu

When you are immersed in books
And soaked with words
And nothing else seems
more interesting
Brain works and gets tired
straining the particles of knowledge
But living inside books
you forget the beautiful world around
and  time runs ahead of you
leaving you behind

Comments about Bookworm

you forget the beautiful world around and time runs ahead of you leaving you behind.. this is so true dear Rini. this is also my experience. immersing oneself in books and wisdom is good. But we shall not forget to commune with the nature. Nature and meditation and contemplation helps us to be more and more human. thank you for your thoughts.. tony
Beautiful poem about the joy of reading books. But towards the end, it is observed that 'you forget the beautiful world around'. This, too, is a big tribute to the books and its readers. Thanks.
I thought I had left a comment on this poem before, but I can't find it. Anyway, I love books and I love this poem. Thanks for posting, Rini.
Very true....not to be a bookworm yet to remain a book reader is in our limitation.....a good theme finely crafted ...thanks for sharing this cute poem.. thank you Rini for your good comment on my poem also
An interesting concept brought out strikingly in this poem. We depend on books (of course, now the net) , 'missing the woods for the trees'. A lovely poem!

When you are in the midst of darkness
Where loneliness engulfs your soul
Twinges of hopelessness felt
Chirping sound of crickets heard

Galaxy Of Poetry

On that dark night when I was not able to sleep
When I wanted to escape from this earth
to a different galaxy..  I flew high and landed in this galaxy of poetry
Where I am happy and more satisfied than ever before


Why this veil, show your face
Don't hide behind the window pane
Come face to face then you will win
Or people will say you are insane

Vicarious Pleasure

Saplings and trees so wild and mysterious
You took me to the magical woods
Twisted roots and mossy rocks
Enchanted my imagination

Heart Vs Mind

I am confused really confused
My mind says to fight for truth
And Heart says to live in harmony
The Mind sets boundaries and limitations

Garden Of Love

Soul in the garden of love
It's like paradise on earth
Twinkling stars wrapped in black carpet
Fresh energetic buds ready to burst
