    My well inked friends


    I've dropped in now and then to read your words
    And I am convinced of the talent here
    Wielding such power that pierces like swords
    Into your world I am honored to peer


    My well inked friends, thoughts and feelings you bare
    Gives me the courage to write from the heart
    And the freedom my deep secrets to share
    Forming my words into personal art


    We all seem to bleed black, blue or red ink
    Sometimes it just pours and fills up the zone
    We post our paintings or even a link
    Your beautiful words on me they have grown

    I read all these posts that set me on fire
    I thank you for words that truly inspire

    A well inked sonnet, Alexandra, and a fitting year-end tribute to those who post in this forum, among whom you are greatly esteemed.

    Thankya--

    I often see the glaring discrepancy between people using ink to write, and the modern keyboards. I was reading a thing on Poetry how the writer preferred the manual, handwritten poem-writing. I have written most of my stuff on the PC, but then again I know the difference between paper and a screen. Anyway, I tend to side with the fact that more poems are written on the computer now-a-days. And I am not criticizing your use of the 'ink', which was cool, cool colors.

    Me too, I am convinced of the talent and I am surprised by it. Thanks for posting, Alex, and thank you everyone. Poets. Writers. Word users. lol.

    Kudos, AtL.

      Well inked is metaphorically used here amenOra because I feel like sometimes i bleed ink or my tears are ink from composing poetry. I use the computer, pens, dictate on my phone, type on my phone etc. i love reading others work and experience their perspective. Amazing writers. Respectfully.

        Love this - I sometimes sit in a local coffee shop and write with an old-fashioned fountain pen, getting teased by the young waiting staff who ask - "do people still use those?"
        Your words are most encouraging and reflect the insightful depths of your poetry. Thank you for sharing.

            This is beautiful Alexandra! I feel much the same way about the great and gracious friends I've found in this space. It's been a long while since I've tried a sonnet. You continue to inspire me to try - thank you for that!

                  Of course you are. All the poets here are unique and have their own style which inspires me to spread my wings and describe my feelings and thoughts in ways I didn’t think of before. Sincerely I admire the talent, depth and honesty in the writings here.

                  Think ink. No green,
                  the sign once seen
                  of unsound mind,
                  on the blink,alert
                  for the recipient.

                  Hello AlexandratheLate, It is a fine zone, beautiful, too, like a garden, no matter the season, be it day or night - always in bloom. It is, as if, the gardeners never tire and a fine and skilled gardener, yo are. Fond regards, Tony.
