A Handwritten Poem #FridayReflections

I love writing on paper with the pen. I love the time and effort I have to put in order to achieve that simple task of writing. Writing down with a pen rather than typing is a challenge, otherwise why typing has become everyone’s favorite pick over writing with a pen?

Free writing is even harder as the mind races fast with thoughts and the fingers try its best to keep up the pace to put those thoughts down using appropriate words. But once I finish putting my thoughts down on a paper, the satisfaction that follows is immense.

For the reader it is a different kind of challenge – to decipher a handwritten note, isn’t it? Kanna always has trouble reading mine. Typing sure delivers more clarity.

Here is a handwritten poem I wrote last week after reading a blog post which left me with a heavy heart. Do read and share your thoughts.

  1. Wow, the poem is wonderful and such a lovely handwriting you have! I shy away from writing because I’ve pathetic handwriting and also like you said my mind races ahead and my fingers cannot cope and that leads to more rushed writing. But, I agree with the sentiment that writing on paper brings a different joy altogether. Beautiful, Vinitha!

  2. Wow this free write is so beautifully written. And I am in love with your handwriting. I haven’t handwritten a poem in a long time. I am inspired now.

  3. I love your handwriting … and your thoughts…sometimes other people’s pain touches a nerve in us, and we can only wonder how they live with it!

  4. Lovely handwriting and I loved the flow of words…Even I try to write with pen and paper at times…it often proves therapeutic for me.

  5. Vinitha, i have always believed that handwritten notes are a perfect reflection of the mind. It is not only the words that pour out, but it is also the handwriting that speaks volumes of a person…I loved the touch of emptions that lie in your poem.

  6. I cannot imagine writing by hand – I cross out and rewrite so many many times. Love your handwriting and those thoughts are sad and beautiful all at once.

  7. Love writing on papers> Old school all the way down (Only that my hand written isnt legible) The words, Vinitha have been beautifully written and they convey how strong you felt and how unbearable the pain of the writer must have been. Best wishes!

  8. Lovely handwriting you have, Vinitha! There was a time when I would write everything on paper, but now my lappy is my best friend. I cross out so many times, (now-a-days) that writing on paper is out of question. Of course, I use paper for my lists or writing entries in journals.

  9. Oh I love reading handwritten notes and letters. On your blog, it was especially wonderful to read, as it was unexpected.

    I hope your friend finds the strength to deal with whatever he/she is going through.

    1. Oh, I love letters, Shantala. Recently my son received a letter from his friend in the UK. I was so, so jealous. Still is.
      Well, she isn’t my friend exactly. I read a random blog and the post was killing. I got a fresh perspective on what pain is.
