I dwell alone, existing in a solitary world drifting among various thoughts, not a vacuum but a potential happening. A dreamlike state, at flux within the flow of creating – determining potentialities with the formation of my words, perhaps stylized, perhaps distinctive, uniquely me. Poetic in prose, pleasing to the eye, original.
The crafting of words is an art form. And in essence, the same as any artist in the throes of creation, the different factor being only that of medium. But as for the rest, an artist at work.
Cascading possibilities stream endlessly through consciousness and I am reminded my personal pallet of verbal colors can be as expressively rich as a glorious spring day, corresponding adjective hues and nuances as numerous as the most vivid of rainbows viewed through moisture laden air after a summer storm.
My words will be like onto visual works of art, flowing in movement, a glorious symphony of expression, making known to you my thoughts and feelings in a manner that will move you as many artists do with their creations. It is, after all, what we do – we artists of the word.writing artisans capturing life’s essence rendering in words

You depicted the art of crafting words beautifully. You are a real artist.
Thank you, Indira. Your lovely compliment are happy words to my eyes and received most gratefully! I hope all is going well for you! xx
Not so well dear but managing. Thanks for your concern.
I bow to you dear Penny..the Michelangelo of creativity !
You are too kind. I am appreciative and I think your writing is excellent as well – just so you know! 🙂 xx
This is perfection, Penny. The way you have described the flow of words coming from the head as a flow of paint comes from a brush. The crafting of words is indeed an art form and I am blessed to know two or three who are masters of that form, and also journeymen (or women if you like) who are so wonderfully good as well.
You paint this Haibun, and I thank you for taking part this week.
Always a pleasure, Alastair! Truly, and thank you very much! xx
You’re welcome 🙂
Hi Penny, I loved that last paragraph, a great haibun and wouldn’t we all love our own words to flow in such ways as you done with yours. Beautifully done Penny.
Hey Michael, hi there and thank you, my friend! I do honestly feel this way about words. And I suppose being a portrait artist for a number of years helped set the stage for the wording on this one! Hope all is well with you and that you are busy enjoying your extra free time! xx
Thanks Penny life is wonderful, I can recommend it. Lovely to hear from you.
Thank you, I have been offline a lot recently, hoping this will change soon. Life sounds great over there!
Hope your time away is profitable. I am doing very well Penny. Life is being good to me right now.
Awesome. I particularly loved “my personal pallet of verbal colors”. I bow my head in admiration 😉
Hi Helen, thank you! It is fuuuunnnnnn to create with words, don’t you think? 🙂
