Kalligraphia

Eyes; engraved onto Swiss opaline parchment,
an odd silvery blankness waits for its miracle.
Somewhere scribed into the fibers of time; we touched.
Distinctiveness, individuality and artistic nature,
fingers eloquently forming each letter of life into
kaligraphia; writing bleeding in india ink
ready to trace our seamless contours and curvaceous
silhouettes begging to be bound into elegant
lettering.
Eons of particles from life flutter over empty pages
pleading to be written upon.
Libraries torn down, too far for our fingertips,
as the heavenly fragrance of freshly pressed paper
and ink is lost to the hum of electronics…
But; I so needed to reach You.
My dribbled ink spots on the pages of our lives
handwritten…
covered, bound…stacked along dusty shelves,
book after book.
The weight of my words destined to collapse
into the mouths of Megabytes
munching away at our human remains……

About echowood628

Let me start by saying I have been involved in creative endeavors my entire life. I began playing the piano at age two, composed my first song at age four, and ever since have spent almost every day spending hours allowing my fingers to dance across my keyboard. Composing music for the piano gave me a place to heal and find peace. An art major in college I focused on drawing and figure drawing and I also enjoy oil painting and watercolors. I have always enjoyed poetry and more recently started writing poems and enjoying the freedom and limitlessness of expressing my heart with paper and ink. I am divorced with two grown children. My daughter is a published author and my son is attending college majoring in zoology.
