THE PEN!

"Are you Quill?," She asked abeam.
"Yes, of course! - mostly - when the Muselle` 
visits oft'n'r upon, as my wont!
"Well, here!, this will surely help at the Magic...

And IT, Voila!, was in hand, a thrust-unmistakable!
Blunt, bulbous & sleek, a slick Recife, 
this Turquoise and Silver stick.

Is IT "Blue?" Is IT "Black?" 
Pray, "Blue-Black!?"  Wow! - 
A Sole instrument for Playing in the Indigene,
Soul Colors of the Earth! - I nearly crack to Self.

Swirled-embedded, b'neath the haute Baekelight-Crystal
like a LavaLamp-Entemp.  IT's messages of ambidexsrait-
Threads, Mola thru splayed fingers.  O' Charitable Mage 
You have brought to Life!...   I     Write    Handcrafted!  
                                                        
                                                        H.e.m.
                                                        5.1.MMvii.
                                                        Solus

    TY, all, again for your aggrandizement on this Piece; I am pleased, a bit surprised by the re-featuring of "The Pen!," having had the selection, & "won" in a previous contest, not familiar with the mechanics/policy of PoetrySoup in this regard. Perhaps some one of you will indulge & explicate? TY, & I am honored - H'H./H.e.m.

    Congrats once again as you are being honoured once again with another feature of the week. We can’t get this kind of well deserved honour else where other than poetrysoup. Keep writing, you are a great poet… Leke
