Calligraphy

Up and down as it overlooks
the open book
freefalling so
but where to go?

Embellish each page, one by one
where words will run,
of written swerves,
artistic curves

By quill that writes an artful verse
I now rehearse
but cannot free
calligraphy

    A clever take on this Carrie and it makes me think of my poor attempts at writing with a quill "what a mess"---but those that can--wow

    Oh, I soooo get this. I used to do calligraphy! The 'exactness' that the calligrapher tries to obtain, correct slant, right pressure, my hand lifting at JUST the right moment... constraint! And yet the flow of the ink, the FEEL of the paper under the nib does seem freeing. And yet EVERY calligrapher knows that (like poetry) nothing penned for art is every completely free. AWESOME. Faves for me. LOL...forgot to congratulate you. I was so blown away. Hugs, Cyndi
