INK IN THE PAPER

It brings happiness.
I am looking at the sundown, 
tied in a tree branches.

In the Garama river cruise,
we laugh and joke,
with monkeys in the trees,
and with the fireflies.

The experience with no price,
but has a great value, 
We come and go.
We meet and depart.

We listen to different stories.
Stories of bravery.
Tales of cultures.
And the beauty of the language.

The language of tongue. 
The language of self. 
But I am putting an ink to paper, 
will make the story begin.

Hi, Neldy, I enjoyed reading your poem. And you have the right idea of putting ink to paper. In this poem you could write about the sun going down and how beautiful the sky is, your river cruise the monkeys in the trees, etc. Each a story in inself. I am new here and I happy to meet you and read your poetry.
