In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Pens and Pencils.”

Pens and pencils crayons too fill up the jars on my desk.

Lonely they have been of late , the  keyboard robbed them of  my touch.

To hold you dearly in my hand  , oh fountain pen you hold such charm.

How did it come to this sad state  that  my real blue ink lays in wait.

Hands are shaking from  your touch making all my letters quiver .

Maybe tomorrow  I will ask,  grand daughter Kate to  enjoy this task .

Her hand is steady   the ink will flow from a pen from grandma don’t you know.

  1. I still write thank you notes, thinking of you notes, sympathy notes, encouragement notes…all by hand. I have some serious arthritis going on in my thumb joints, but I know how much it means to me to get a personal note from someone so I press on in this lost art of correspondence. Love my pens and pencils! I have them all colors…

  2. Yes, once upon a time all those pens and pencils — and crayons and construction paper too — were so well loved. I still write many of my blog drafts by hand, but now I have only one favorite pen, which I refill when needed. After reading this post I’m tempted to go draw some doodles for the fun of it! 🙂
