Lines of ink

Ink
On Paper
Forming lines
Forming curves, crossings

These short lines and curves
Forming letters, to write our words
Words that we can use to express our thoughts
Words that give emotion and understanding, insight

We skilfully craft
Emotion into ink
We paint a picture
With nothing but lines of ink

In love with words
In words there is love
How I love to play
With these little lines of ink

This suggests much into depths of feelings, ones that are not easily shared is my take on it. You have me thinking... with much emotions. Maybe my emotions aren't the same you intended with these words, but they are ones that struck a deep vein for me. Very well done - thanks.

Very interesting that we have chosen these particular lines and curves to express so much to those who can read them; while other languages have such different choices of curves and lines to express their deepest feelings and emotions, while they mean nothing to those who do not know their meaning. I like this poem.
Ashe.

Very true. I guess that is how all poets craft their works. Bravo!

Yes, it is fun, to see what that pen comes up with.
Sometimes it surprises you.
