Lazy Hand

Lazy Hand

My handwriting has always been untidy.  Yet I still prefer to write first and then type it up later.  How many of us still like to handwrite drafts first?


Lazy Hand


Lazy hand

On the page


The shortest route

From letter to letter.


My handwriting –

Or scribble –

Was never good.

A spidery script

Over the lines

May better describe

What appears

on the page.


I have been seen


My best squinty stare

In a vain attempt

To decipher

Or decode

A word

I had written.


With the times of typing

Has my lazy hand


Or honed its hazy ways?


It is worse!

As it zigzags


The page.

Daydreaming as a profession

Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
