Writings along the walls

Writings along the roads

Words pouring out of the people around her

Letters simply buzzing by in the air

Nobody saw them

Except for one

The one called

“The Writer”

The Writer took these words

And put them onto paper

She took them

Stroked them

Took care of them

And they took care of her in return

Like a crazy cat lady

She had thousands of them

Each of them she knew by name

The people of the town

Knew not of these words

They saw the air around them

They saw bees buzzing

Saw the trees swaying

But words never spoke to them

The words didn’t speak to anyone except for The Writer

For the Writer they knew

And the words she knew

And as the years went by

The words grew attached to her

The words loved her so much

That day by day

They started showing her their world

World’s full of amazing colors

Worlds filled to the brim with anything you could think of

World’s that came from her heart

Worlds called

“Imagination”

Her own world

A world that was simply black and white

A world filled to the brim with black ink and white paper

But no story

People came and went around her

What were they doing?

Smog filled skies

Trees fading from the world

Life losing its grip on humanity

All except the one called “The Writer”

For The Writer knew what to do

For she had lived among the words her whole life

Living in a world filled with something these black and white people didn’t know

Something that only the words could show her

Bright red ink splattered on her

And it weaved its way into her heart

It was something truly beautiful

It was “Love”

The ink she spoke of wasn’t only black and white

Not the kind only the village people spoke of

They were full of greens and blues

With specks of yellow and orange

And hues of pinks and purples

They danced around in her mind

Softly she dipped her pen into the bottle

And told of her stories

Of adventures the world had never known about

Of sights that even the village travelers could never tell about

Children came and crowded around

Listening to her stories

Of tiny creatures that granted wishes

Of large beasts that captured dreams

And each time she told them

The world around her started becoming more enveloped by her color

Trees had splotches of green

Hues of blue were entangling the wisps of sky still left

The children carried The Writer’s stories far

And told of them throughout the generations

Though they changed throughout the years

Still The Writer’s words rang true

Until the world was covered in ink

Bright, colorful ink

You see her words in everything today

From the lights of dusk

To the shadows of dawn

They are within all of us

And even now

The Writer sits in her chair

Writing her words on paper

Reaching for her rainbow-colored inkwell

The scratching of her pen on paper

Is like no other

It sings of glorious songs

It whispers of mysterious secrets

It dances to the rhythm of memories

Flowing deeply into her veins

Stretching far to reach our own

Plip, plop goes the ink

Dripping

Splattering the world in its messy ways

For what is a perfect world?

But a world with no color

Yet nobody cared

The people lived their lives

With only the things they saw in front of them

They heard voices

They saw a world

Barren and void of a painter’s brush

Days came with the same stories

Except for when the one they called

“The Writer”

Came into the plain and simple town

A mystery to all

But to writer them self

For they too know the way

As her children

We eagerly take care of her writing

Making sure the script is just right

Each different in their own unique ways

For the ink is different for all

For the words it shows is special to each and everyone

And patiently we wait

In the dawn of the morning

To the dusk of night

Eagerly pouring out our heart into the pages

Patiently waiting for the readers to read it

For that is the way of a writer

On April Fool’s Day

I went down with a crash

With a zang and a bang

Yet another April Fool’s prank

Has awakened me again

How I wish it would stop

The giggles of laughter and glee

How I wish it could be calm

Just another day in peace

But I guess that will never happen to me

On April Fool’s day

I hear the mother’s screaming

I fear the father’s preaching

The grandmother’s weeping

The grandfather’s beating

At least it’s only for a day

I sigh softly to myself

Any longer and this world would’ve gone crazy for sure

I sing myself a little tune

And eat my breakfast cold

Wiping wet whoopee cushions from my seat once again

I can’t help, but chuckle as I see small feet running away

Hiding in fear that they might be found out

Looking outside I see the fresh rolls of toilet paper

Hanging onto the trees like snow

It makes me shudder as I know I’ll have to take it down soon

The bits of confetti are sprinkled through the air

And bring the smell of fresh toffee through the whole town

Though I must admit,

Even though I truly hate April Fool’s day

There is something about it that is truly magical

A day that makes children’s heart quiver in anticipation

A day that makes pranks ten times more exciting

Laughing at the stupidest of jokes

Grinning at the faces with inky cat whiskers

I almost wish I could join them

I really do

Yet I know this is their day to shine

To smile at our surprised faces

To giggle at our angry glares

So I’ll sit back and wait

For the jokers to come out

For the pranksters to come calling

For the jesters to start dancing

For by tomorrow morning

They know what will happen

They will sigh with heavy hearts

For their one day of tricks is gone until next year

Though they plan in silence for next year’s visit

I’ll sit right here and somewhat miss it

The anticipation of exploding pies and blasting peanut cans

Doesn’t really get me as worked up as them

So come at me all you want

Just yearning to see my infuriated expression

But all I can do is laugh at it

For once I was like you

For a child’s heart I once had

And maybe I still have a bit of it left in me

Or at least on this one day of the year

This special day called “April Fool’s”

 (Even though it’s already past April Fool’s day I just had to do this)

(And also… Hope you had a Happy April Fool’s day!)
