With a Pen’s Magic
Writers help others experience the world…
Through sight…painting pictures of a sunset
the beauty of a tulip, and the majesty
of snow-capped mountains in summer.
Through hearing…capturing the magic
in cascading water, the peace of harp
music, and the joy in a child’s laughter.
Through taste…savoring the richness of coffee,
the delight of a Thanksgiving dinner,
and the pleasure of milk chocolate.
Through smell…delivering the fresh scent
of spring rain, the aroma of baking
bread, and fragrance of a new book.
Through touch…transferring the breath
of the wind, hands linked in sorrow,
and the feel of an warm embrace.
…and jot on paper what others rush by.
