The Perfect Tool

Pen Swords (I have the second one)

It is time to write
Yet what tool shall I use today
So many options
A pencil maybe?
Great if I make a mistake
Yet there is smearing
Perhaps a new pen
Because I feel confident
I think it just leaked
Quill and ink could work
All I need is a feather
Gulls are really mean
My phone can take notes
What could possibly go wrong?
Duck autocorrect
Markers or crayons!
Both smell of delicious fruit
I cannot read this
Time for computer
You can’t go wrong with high tech
Look at the kittens!
A tool has been picked
It is time for the next stage
Book, pad, card, or wall?

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    Ha ha! So true! A great assessment of what happens when a tool is selected. I find myself distracted when I work on the computer and when I write notes in my journal. I only use my phone for notes when I’m desperate (like I left home without my journal).


  2. Thank you for sharing this, I really enjoyed it… I might have to get one of those sword pens!


  3. Enjoyed this, Charles.
