Poem #14

This prompt was a bit fun. Time to write a poem about writing... The prompt was to write a poem titled "how (fill in the blank) behaves." I chose to write about my pen:-)

How my pen behaves

Pouring forth indigo goodness

Script ripples across alabaster

Pages tied by thought

And fragile threads

Winsome words weaving wonders

Scarlet gel slips and slides

Consonants and vowels

Pulled into a black and white

Gridded marvel

Vocabulary explosions

But then puddles of violet

Soak futile linen

Doodles replace eloquence

Scratching, no longer gliding

Ripping raw syllables

A tool, a toy, a torture

This is how my pen behaves
