Pen to Paper

Location

Putting pen to paper

Is more difficult than it sounds

During the night

It's easy

I'll write of adventure

Of fights

Of romance

Of tales incredible to behold

But putting pen to paper is different

For ideas are water

They dive swiftly through the river

You watch them as they dance by

Hoping to catch just one

And even as you hold them in your hand

They slip through your fingers

And are gone
