Turning Pages

Sometimes I cheat
when reading, peaking
at the end
to ease living
through the middle.

Other times, I read much
too quickly, grabbing the gist
rather than lingering on
the words and lines,
crafted carefully
to weave a tale.

But stories are best lived
on each presenting page,
gently turned
one after the other.

My life too
is best lived,
each minute savored
as simply as it comes.
