Feather Pen

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1081 Feather pen (or Quill pen)
Ages ago there was no PC, tablet of smartphone to write your notes or haiku on, they had only a sharp pin and clay or later the use of ink and feather came in vogue. In the Middle Ages the most people couldn’t write or read. In our regions the monks were one of the only groups who could write and they did that with a great precision … they copied books with only the use of ink and a feather. 


back in time again I write
with a quill pen
screeching paper
the poet writes his poems

Here is my attempt:

looking around at birds
provides a feather pen


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
