NaPoWriMo 2015 ~ Writer (A Haiku Collection)

April 6th, 2105 ~ Writer (A Haiku Collection)

typing

Pen sits on paper,

fingers pause upon the keys.

Muse, descend on me.

~

I can’t speak to you,

can’t spin beauty with my mouth,

so I write instead.

~

My thoughts unwind from

the ball of inspiration—

oh no! There’s a knot!

writingmusic

Thoughts sing and eyes dart,

fingers fly and keys chatter—

writing is music.

~

I have fought in wars,

touched the stars, created worlds,

all from this old chair.

~

By writing only

do I notice the marbles

shining in the mud.

On keyboard I race,

but on paper I savor,

tasting life with pen.

~

Life and death and love

and the course of many lives

have sprung from this pen.

~

I feel deeper pain,

behold brighter light than most.

I am a writer.

  1. Oh, these are great! I love the conciseness you capture each idea and aspect of a writer. The second, third, and fifth are some of my favorites, but the last one is just perfect. It sounds like something you’d sign your emails with or something, and it’s very, very true. Would you mind if I maybe used that same idea for one of my poems, if I gave you credit?
