P is for Writing


P is for Writing
By Edna Pontillo


If you were penning poems, you’d pen in verse or rhyme
Your senses would be running wild, you’d use them all the time.
An ode to life would be your joy
A fountain pen, your favorite toy,
A passing thought, your only ploy,
If you were penning poems.

If you were penning prose, you’d pen in plots or praise,
You’d look for any problems you possibly could raise.
A character would stop to ponder,
Perhaps next scene, he’d have to wander.
Her heart might only grow some fonder,
If you were penning prose.

One day you will publish, present your words in print,
Probable pauper still, but press your writing stint.
Ah, the p.c., paper, pencil, and pen,
Capturing the way things were back then,
And urging you on to what might be when
You publish prose or poems.

Edna, a retired educator, has always loved reading, writing, writers, and teaching writing to students. Since her retirement ,she has commenced work on a children’s novel.

I love how P is for writing, in your poem...it made me smile.

Jolene Perry said...

Thanks for the smile. I had to read it twice, because it begged to be read out loud =)

Bob Scotney said...

Neat! Very appropiate for P.

Karen Peterson said...

This made me smile. I really enjoyed reading it. And I have this sudden urge to cast aside my computer, dig out some paper and a pen and get back to work on my own novel.

Thanks everyone so much
My heart your words did touch!
I get excited to write
Putting ink to the white,
And reading your comments and such!

Thank you!

P is for writing was such fun to read. It invited me into your writing brain and allowed me to see the wit, humor, love of words and deepness of thought you used to create a perfectly profound poem for all of us. Thank you!
