Pen For Poetry - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich

At night, around ten
I will reach for my pen
and with caution and glee
write some good poetry

On vacation in Cairo
in Egyptian heat
I had only a biro
and a papyrus sheet.

    And then around eleven, he reaches for the best scotch this side of heaven. Ha! Keep writing, Herbert. I see you've posted more than usual today. Glad you're back.

    Funny, we all do what we have to do to write! When at the beach, we write it in the sand; at a restaurant, we write on the menu or a napkin. Your poem is good, Herbert.
