Carpe Diem # 655 First Calligraphy (kakazomi)

This was my first writing for this new year:

half a century
 squeezed
into silver sequins
last year’s birthday

 

As a left hander my fingers always drag through the ink.  I’ve had many mishaps trying to learn the art of calligraphy as a child and young adult  I have since learned.to turn my paper sideways and form the letters sideways going down instead of across. No smearing.

ink smudges on hand
letters wobble on straight lines
first calligraphy

first calligraphy
ink bleeds from trepidation
wavering haiku

Angelo-Gemmi-fountain-pen

Ink splats on paper
fountain pen leaking again
Thoughts lost in blackness
