Nine. Fifty Three.

let yourself become living poetry

I hear nothing in my ear but your voice

Heart has plundered mind of all its eloquence.

Love writes a transparent calligraphy,

so on the empty page my soul

can read & recollect. 



The “empty page” beckons…

when was the last time

you danced a pen upon smooth paper,

Allowed words to flow from your mind,

into your hand

guiding your fingers to pen

Your other hand holding the page steady

as your other writes with wild abandon?

Do you remember when?

You last wrote for so long you had to stop

and flex fingers and arch your back

and open your throat and heart upward

collecting more wonder from the universe

to attack the page again with ink?

How do you write?

Are you the type to press so light, words barely kiss the page

or are you (like me) you press so hard the script is felt as well as seen,

fingerprints can follow the lines and curves like a lover?

How do you love?

Do you like lines, keeping all within and contained

or do you like a completely blank page, grammar going wherever it may

do you doodle, add tiny things randomly, leave lots of blank space for meandering?

How do you dream?
