Haiku – “Muse” & “Pen”

#1 –
Musing and mulling
The perfect combination…
But pen lies idle

#2 –
A nostalgic muse:
Remembering real pens
Rather than keyboards?

#3 –
Inspiration comes
With a change of perspective.
Pen tries to keep up!

Written for Ronovan’s weekly haiku challenge, with the prompts of “muse” and “pen”. Check the other entries out here: https://ronovanwrites.wordpress.com/2015/10/26/ronovanwrites-weekly-haiku-poetry-prompt-challenge-68-muse-pen/

  1. 20 years ago, I had a newspaper editor who taught me to LOVE the red pen… of course this came after 3 solid months of despising HIS red pen. Ah yes, the good old days, when red pens brought out the best in me! ❤

    • I write most of mine on my smart phone, but I often write and doodle some ideas on the corner of whatever paper I have to hand at work… Can be difficult to explain to the boss why your meeting notes have haiku in the margins!

      I struggle to write poetry direct onto a keyboard… It feels too neat and perfect from the off, rather than allowing space to grow and evolve and perfect word choice. Different strokes for different folks…
