Calligraphy Is An Art

Using calligraphy a visual art

penning words from the heart

how to make you feel each stroke

verses of rain and thunder broke

etched across a parchment page

watercolor flowers set the stage

a teardrop falls, smudging thoughts

maybe, someday our letters will cross

incorporating "smudge"

  3. It truly is an art as many an ancient manuscript illustrates! The way you describe it, it also sounds like a form of meditation...

  4. Calligraphy is truly a beautiful art! With handwriting becoming less popular, cursive and writing in calligraphy will be collectable!
    A great poem Trudessa!

  8. I'm thinking that you must do calligraphy, Truedessa, am I right? I've always been fascinated by the beauty of that art. Your poem is charming and I hope those letters will cross someday too.
