Pen, Paper, Amazement.


Pen, Paper, Amazement.
Disbelief at the magic,
Stories written are tragic.

Pen on the paper
Amazement through words
The story shaper,
Moving forwards.

The smooth flow of words
painting in my head
pictures of wonder
and phrases, to describe.

Out the words flow
onto the page,
stories will grow
character's age.

Held by their pages,
trapped by their lines.
Ink is their cages,
their dreams are mine.

Stories are written, to create life anew.
But whose stories are written, are some of them true?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
