Very beautifully written ❤🌹

nice musing on the creative writing process, Christine!
Thanks Lisa! I’m happy you liked it ☺️
You’re most welcome, m’dear 🙂
I think I mostly dance on my keyboard… it sounds so much better on paper.
Thank you Bjorn ☺️
Love it Christine. Much more magical a pen dancing across the paper than banging away on a keyboard and staring at a screen!
Thank you Lynn. I know, I always use my computer but there’s something special about writing in a notebook ☺️💕
Sitting in a coffee shop and watching the passing parade provides fodder for our creative minds so having a notebook at hand is always a must. Have a great weekend.
Yes I agree! You have a lovely weekend too ☺️💕
I love the boundless energy you captured with this poem ….. Cheers.
Thank you Helen. I needed something light hearted ☺️💕

Pen pirouettes-what a beautiful line

Lovely. I especially like those closing lines: “My pen pirouettes/across the paper/and my poem is born”. Lovely imagery.
