Mightier than the Sword Pencil

2nd in the Poem-A-Day Challenge from Poetic Asides:

I am a pen
deep inside a purse
zipping open
zipping closed
light and darkness

the brush of fingers
grasping finally
a warm grip
touching my tip
to the blank page
dancing me along the lines
letters, words, phrases
pushed and pulled
by the passion of the writer

ink flowing out
like blood
like emotion
like life
to say something
worthwhile

to connect
with the page
with a reader
with a heart

so much better
than my last gig
shopping lists
signing checks
paying bills
math homework

this is why
I was hand crafted
and filled with ink
my purpose
is fulfilled

Very nice! I love your phrase "pushed and pulled by the passion of the writer". It's a lucky pen indeed that finds itself in your purse! ;)

(And three posts in a row ~ I feel like I've hit the jackpot!)
