Handwriting

24 Comments

Today I realized,

I miss handwriting my thoughts…

The slanted “A” and the fancy “I”s,

the way my hand gripped the pen,

the smudge of ink on the side of my left hand,

as it moved left to right on the piece of paper,

a silent meditation,

without a thousand windows open in front of your eyes,

Today I realized,

I miss handwriting my thoughts

  1. 🙂 I love handwriting! ❤

  2. I’m not always near a computer, iPad or phone, so I take that opportunity to use a pen and paper to capture that momentary inspiration. Still a great option.

  3. My grandson in IA told me that his 5th grade class last year was the last class in his school to be taught handwriting. Isn’t that so sad? Where is the individuality going to come from? I love this poem Neha! Beautiful

    • Thank you so much Andy! ❤ and that is so sad!! I cannot believe it is actually happening …pen and paper has always been one my most cherished possession and to think that kids will not have the opportunity to use them is heartbreaking …Thank you so much for dropping by 🙂

  4. As much as I like the convenience of my computer I find pen and paper take me to special places not so easily accessible through tapping keys 🙂

  5. Today I did some hand writing in the park…it was fantastic and so refreshing. The quickness of getting the words on screen can’t replace natural sunlight and fresh wind.

  6. I enjoy the idea of handwritten notes and love receiving them, but my handwriting is horrible! 🙂

  7. Beautifully written 🙂 I have terrible handwriting, but you’re right, there’s something about gliding our pens across paper!

  8. I simply love writing by hand…it is a form of art!! All of my poems are handwritten…I have so many journals!! ❤

    • I love that! I used to have that myself but with being on the computer all day my inspiration has to be printed on the screen a lot of times…But whenever I get a chance I love to sit outside and write by hand with my favourite pen and see the ink flow on paper 🙂

      • I hope you get to do it more often Neha. I don’t think I realized just how important it is to me to write with my hand until I hurt it and couldn’t do it! Hope you had a great weekend ❤

      • Thank you my friend I did have a good weekend! Can’t believe it’s almost over…and yes I hope I get to do more writing too! Have a wonderful week ahead! 🙂

  9. I love handwriting and your poem perfectly puts those feelings to words.
