One Day

She said, ‘I’ll write that book…

one day.

It will say so much

that I want to say.

All my life has been the basis,

of thousands of words,

from a myriad places,

where once my feet did tread and pass,

tarmac roads, grass-grown paths;

and all I have to do is look,

and I can see the words there,

in that book…

… and I will write that book…

one day’.

The book came first

Reading the book,

whilst watching a small screen adaption,

leads me to love the book all the more.

True to the original?

There is a lot of artistic licence

in a screenplay.

The dumbing down of the plot,

recognisable actors and actresses

littering the quaint English villages,

all squeezed into a two hours’ view.

The book is where it all stems from,

and seems to me to be

where it all makes sense.

Everybody has a book in them

“It is said that ‘everybody has a book in them’; well, I’ve just seen my x-rays – and it’s true!”

“It’s About Time!”

SD They meet

“Well, it’s about time.”

“What is?”

“This book on the subject of ‘Time’. “

“Oh!” Is it any good?”

“I got it second-hand.”

“And…?”

“I swapped it for my watch.”

“And…?”

“It helps to pass the…”

“Time?”

“Yes. And, it’s also about time-travel.”

“Sounds interesting – can I borrow it after you’ve read it?”

“Yes. I’ll pop it round to you last Thursday.”

“Okay. Can you write next week’s lottery numbers inside the back cover for me?”

“All of them?”

“Probably. 1 through to 47 should about cover it.”

“Will do.”

“Great! Thanks!”

“You’re welcome.”

“Bye!”

“Bye!”

“Until last Thursday!”

“Yup! See you then!”

SD They part.
