The pen and paper, a writer’s tool,

thoughts do flow, for it to use,

not denying, the aesthetic pull,

for only in writing, can it be accused.


A union made from ages,

the epitome of a love affair,

its offspring evidenced in pages,

made of words beloved as air.


A channel where thoughts do pour,

cuts through the heart unlike a sword,

an imaginative journey unlike a tour

to ultimately convert thoughts to words.



Whenever I write, I do wonder at the powerful connection that flows from my thoughts, to the pen and the paper. This bond has always existed between writers and their writing tools. This piece is my own little way of expressing my view about it. I hope you enjoyed it.


Warm regards!


Ndifreke Efiok kpan.
