Indispensable

Pen are different, different in size,
Different hues and different looks,
A writer wants to write something,
Picks up a pen and a virgin page,
Pen is mute and page stares blank,
Page is silent and pen is dormant,
Pen is ignorant about how to write,
Page unaware of what will come forth,
How innocuous and humble both look !
And the ink inside flows clueless !


Can the pen own words on the page ?
Can the ink gloat over writing words ?
Can the writer write without the pen ?
Can the page whisper without the ink ?
The writer reigns and wields the pen,
From his mind, words embrace the ink,
Words become ink, ink kisses the page,
The writer, words, pen, ink and page,
They all look at each other and ponder.

The writer says He is the creator !
The thinker, thought and all thinking,
Words, pen, ink and page all seek him,
Words claim divorce from the writer,
Power shines through their eyes,
The pen forgets the writer and words,
The ink looks at her charming mien,
She abhors the pen and clings to page,
The page is proud being shelter of ink,
He rustles aloud and flaunts words.

Wonder how pride blots outs the mind !
Snub the page and words will wander,
Wipe off the ink ,the page loses life,
Take away words, the ink flows dumb,
Throw away the pen, words will cry,
Ignore the words, the writer will fade,
All make an absolute and I fall for that !
They are bits but bits enlighten the world,
Dust makes mountain, mountain is dust !
Split up the whole, the one comes out !

      Amazing Harish!! The words are so strong but only, as you said, when the writer writes them. The paper and pen are motionless by themselves. I voted this up, shared Tweeted and pinned it.

      This is incredible!

      The title is so appropriate---so many parts make a whole and each part has an important role to play. Lack of interest and coordination from even one part can spoil the beauty of the whole.

      How very meaningful! Very nice expressions. Thanks and voted up!

      I think you penetrated my psyche very successfully. Actually, I wanted to tell something about creator and creation, but then I tried to say it in an earthly way. travmaj, I appreciate your insightful comments. Thank you very much.

      Most intriguing, I liked your words very much. So much to consider here and so much connects. I feel the anguish here - yes, writing well is not an easy craft.

      Yes, Jamie, that's why we love clinging to our loved ones and things in our possession, but there is also a larger field. Thanks for appreciating this poem and presenting such nice comments.

      Initially I thought how all beings are related to each other, but it dawned on me that we are strongly connected to inanimate things also. Devika, I'm glad you liked this poem. Thanks for appreciating the poem.

      Yes, right now I am having a divorce from my words and the mountain is high. I started three stories in the last couple of days and I got to the second sentence and boom! mind went blank! Maybe with your words of wisdom in your poen here I will get at least one of them done to share.

      Have a great Day!!

      This is so completely different and very creative. I thought of that dreaded old writer's block, staring at the paper and no words come forward. Enjoyed much..

      Absolutely stunning Bro. You're a dark horse. You've definitely gone ahead of me with this one. A poem such as this is not easy to craft, and you've done it superbly; with a language which I assume is not your own.

      I love this Harish. The connection between the pen, ink, paper and writer is a wonderful concept...you bring each of these to life with their own personality and importance to writing. Voted up.
