Ode to my Kindle

Here in my hand
Ten thousand angels
On the head of a pin!
Each one a whole universe of understanding.
Not a word that can be written
Is not contained therein
Here unfolds handbooks and histories
How-to’s and horoscopes are here too
A whole library on a shelf? Not even!
Every word ever writ
Here in my pocket!

The midweek motif at poets united topic is books

  1. I like the reference to the ten thousand angels on the head of a pin….as wonderful as tablets are, I still prefer regular books. I like the feel of them in my hand, love turning the pages.


  2. Yes yes yes! (Though personally I love to have my Kindle, iBooks, Kobo and GooglePlay apps all on my trusty iPad mini.) And at last you have solved the angels on a pin question! 🙂


    1. the love of a book and the love of a kindle are not exclusive in the least. just as the second child is not a replacement of the first. your heart is big enough to love both!
