True craftsmanship

create a picture 

using a pen and paper 

needs some craftsmanship 

bend these words on the anvil 

to make something much greater

it is easy to write a haiku/tanka 
but the art is to create a picture a blacksmith 
it takes true craftsmanship to make it happen with just so few words .. 
with this i call it " the wordsmith "

    The wordsmith would be a fitting title for this piece...Raul
