The Pen

(Intermezzo by Françoise Gilot, born 1921, French painter,
writer, and muse of Pablo Picasso)

I found this poem recently at the blog hosted by librarian Diane Mayr at the Nesmith Library in Wyndam, N. H. You can visit it here.


Take a pen in your uncertain fingers.
Trust, and be assured
That the whole world is a sky-blue butterfly
And that words are the nets to capture it.

~ Muhammad al-Ghuzzi, born 1949, Tunisian poet and translator
