Romance of pen and paper is fun to read, specially since pen is masculine and paper seem feminine, dark and light... and yes they seem dance: the man leads and the woman is nothing but corresponding invitation. They also very romantically give birth to poetry.
Haha but their romance is the thing of the past. Nowadays nobody uses pen and paper, except in note taking. The romance of our time is all about fingers and keyboards.
Lovely writing as always.
Ddavidd, alas I think your comments about romance being a thing of the past and nobody using pen and paper were misguided because I know plenty of people who still have romance in their lives after many years of marriage and who still regularly use pen and paper (and send snail mail) myself included :)
Loved this. I think one of your best. It certainly got me racing to press the nominations button but I see Dagma beat me to it. There have been many poems about writing but this one stood out for me because it wove s secondary tale of love and romance. Superb.. Milly x
