Fingers Trudge

Fingers Trudge ~ Illustration by Patrice

Fingers trudge
across the page 
feeling
the paper’s texture 
smooth
hardly any grain. 

Will the pen 
fill the lines
printed
on this page 
or
will it be vacant 
unused
crumpled
thrown away? 

Fingers hesitate
and then 
pick up trusty pen
and say 
words that fill this page 
with all they want
need
to say.

Leaves in Fall ~ Photo by Patrice

Words have gone
Lost, forgotten, laying strewn
Across a uncaring lawn.

No time to pick them up
No time to remember
What has been forgot.

Words were said
Yet no one remembers exactly
Or just what.
~ Patrice
