Weird these words
dropping in inky
drops from pen end
poised above paper:
a variety of poses.

Not for me the key
-board’s voluminous
vocabulary, nor the tap,
tap, tap, fingers on lap
top to search for a word,
an idea, a distraction
just a tap away.

For me, the slow flow
of thought, the clumping
together of the mind’s
pretty litter of ideas
milked slowly, one by
one from a cornucopia:
happy creativity.

  1. This is very interesting.The poem makes me think of myself trying to write poetry nowadays. I just can’t anymore. And words are indeed very weird to me.
    Funny how I didn’t notice until I read the comments the thing about pen and paper vs. computer.
    I never tried writing on the computer, (poetry, that is. I’m obviously tapping right now) maybe I should try that.
    Thank you for the inspiration 🙂
