Brush Pen

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem. Today I thought of “small poems,” since it’s Easter and a short, small poem will send me out into today’s sunshine sooner.

I love the small poems of Valerie Worth in her many collections of Small Poems. Last year, my CLmooc friends and I wrote and shared poems in our Poetry Port Slideshow. You may found some inspiration there.

I returned to a poem I wrote at that time for my blue pen:

I wrote better poems back then. Today, I tried for a short poem, a small poem about my art pens– the brush pens. Instead, I wrote four haiku and then created the bit of life — the art that the poem and the pen painted.

Brush Pen

Holding a rainbow
in my hand a memory
flows across the page

Swirls of joy in blues
Waves of the lake and sunshine
Summer yellow smiles.

Two dark blobs placed so
With hearts of pink swirled around
Sadness brushed with love.

Bursts of bright curved strokes
Of paths for joys invited—
Steady forward hope.
