B Haiku #atozchallenge

~ They’re only paper ~
~ letters, words, and paragraphs ~
~ but they hold the world ~

Welcome back to the second day of the 2018 A to Z Blogging Challenge, and today’s haiku puzzle.The letter of the day is B, so your job is to figure out the word that begins with B that is suggested by today’s haiku. Hmmm – paper, with letters, words, and paragraphs, but still holding all the world inside? What could they be? Let us know your answer in the comments.

    • Wow, I’m so old school! I’ve read lots of books electronically (including War and Peace, because the paper book was too heavy to lug around), but that didn’t even occur to me while I wrote this haiku. Maybe think of it this way – These Books Here (the ones on my shelf) are only paper – even though Those Books There (the ones in my e-reader or the audio CD) are digital patterns. Does that help?

      Anyway, you got what I was thinking of Well done! Thanks for visiting.


  1. That’s all? I’d say that’s plenty. Books are always enough!

    To quote Doctor Who: “You want weapons? We’re in a library! Books! The best weapons in the world!” (from Tooth and Claw)

    Your first thought was the best thought. Well done.


    • I’m not as diehard a fan as I should be, but I love that quote!
      Yes, Books of course, but the innovator in me has to think of others – magazines, newspapers, the Declaration of Independence, The Emancipation Proclamation, love letters, a last will and testament…

      • Words. Words are the world’s best weapons. No matter how they’re written. And really, though I love Doctor Who, I’d never say you or anyone else “should” be a fan. You do you.
