I Prefer A Sheet
Of White
When I Take
My Pen
And Start
To Write 

I Love To See
The Ink Soak In
On Paper Smooth
As Silky Skin 

And As The Words
Form In My Head
I Write Them Down
In The Color Red 

Scribbled Lines
On Paper Pages
Given A Life
To Live Through
The Ages

  1. Yes, exactly. I have them fairly often actually.

    I have been writing on paper a lot lately, mostly letters. I love the act and the result… It is so much more personal…

  2. Interesting. I just wrote a similar piece for a good friend earlier today… It is funny because I so seldom actually write on paper anymore. It is generally an act reserved for those who are most close and loved.

    1. How cool! A Twilight Zone moment?? Yes, I love to write on paper as much as I can. It seems so much more real and intimate with the touch of the paper and watching the ink and paper meeting in a literary “kiss”. And I don’t have to worry about the paper crashing like a computer can! I seem to always go back, more often to things I’ve put on paper.

      Thanks so much for your lovely comment – so appreciated!
