incy wincy writer

‘It looks like a spider crawled through ink and then onto your page, Paul.’ I do believe this was not offered as a positive critique of my already burgeoning artistic temperament and technique by my class teacher Mrs Kendrick, but is it how I received it. I thought this was so Cool. My words look like spider footprints!

From that day forward writing became a magical thing. It could transform the page and my mind all in one go. Scribbling became synonymous with freedom. So i scribbled. Poems and thoughts and journaling my way through life. Of course I read other scribbles too but theirs were always printed. Not the same.

Kim asks us to write a Handwriting Haibun for the dVerse prompt. This is my submission. Why not pop by and check out the wonderful group of poets and perhaps pen a poem of your own.

    I love spider writing, Paul, and your title! I’m glad you took the comment as a positive one and let it take you to magical things like writing poems. That’s a great haiku, too.

    I love all of this Paul, love how your spider scribbles ignited your love of writing. Words are the most wonderful things.

    Aren’t we all lucky our writing experiences somehow led us to the fascination of putting words on paper. Some of us are even “alchemists of words!”
