On writing…

We gather our praises
From those who will read
We love the attention
For on it we feed.

And yet in all fairness
We try to write well
But a while in the spotlight
Is quite nice for a spell.

Then it’s back to the pen
Our thinking-frowns on
As we all live in fear
Of when the skill’s gone.

Till then we all write
We write and we write
Our pens poised forever
As we wait for insight.

    I gather no praises
    And write with a bic
    The joy of expression
    Is pure and intrinsic.

    I write when I want to
    It’s perfectly clear
    My pen is not poised
    As I don’t live in fear.
