    Word play and more
    when pen lays down with paper
    you never know what's in store
    in this union of words
    The pen strokes and caresses,
    and the paper, trying to remain stationary,
    sighs and undresses
    soaking in every nuance of ink
    Eagerly receiving each letter
    The page wonders if the lines are that
    seductive or if the ink has gotten wetter
    or perhaps it's because of the sturdy
    steel frame of the pen
    Then again
    as we are invited into this slow
    comfortable slew of words could it be about
    what the author wants us to experience? To be artfully
    mind fockd, passionately drawn in, or ecstatically turned out?
    I think it's a collaboration of the experiences the reader
    brings to what is being read
    and what was going on in the writer's head
    at the time the words were played
    as the paper proudly displays
    the love made to it, from
    the rapture of words, each letter lays
    strategically, yet playfully placed
    on the page

    and it sums it up well
    best love pose is paper & pen interwinding
    creating the mystical maze

    Caught up in a haze with the words placed so
    seductively on this page
    Composed for the open minds of this day and age
    Write on so the world can know the truth that resides in you
