Penpusher…

penpusherpen (LadyP)I’m penpusher pen,
from heavens knows when
and who knows where I live?
but, … despite any finer details,
there’s something I like to give.
I share on WordPress
in a way I love best,
my poems do the talking
for me.
In this way,
‘tis all or nothing
and I love to comment,
you see,
as thy words are compelling,
thy photo’s should be selling,
thy paintings truly impress,
I spend so much time
viewing them online,
pen-pushing suffers,
I duly confess.

pen-pusher
( pen-pushers plural ) , penpusher If you call someone a pen-pusher, you mean that their work consists of writing or dealing with documents, and does not seem very useful or important.
(BRIT) n-count

I sometimes wonder at myself, …  all or nothing, should be my byword.
Which my ‘friend’ in London found out when I tried to ‘find’ myself in a new relationship. He wanted all, so he ended up with nothing.  I love to share thoughts and ideas, and sometimes I may reach out and scare people silly with my instinctive and sometimes daft comments (some mis-typed but I’ve never claimed to be perfick!!) .  I hope to be on WordPress for a long while to come…Google+ seems to be calling some, (I have an account too, but I feel more at home here,  therefore I usually Google+ my updates and recommendations)  So, that’s it… that’s all I have to say… excepting I’ve been feeling a tad unsettled of late… mayhap it’s the fact that ‘old faithful’, my kettle is on his last legs… and may need replacing soon.  ;-)  xxx

      • Then I must say penpusherpen is the right title. It’s ever evolving, in progress. steaming with thoughts, pouring out words, one after another. All or nothing is never a choice we writers had hence we can’t offer.

        • I had a break of just over a year, coming back to WordPress in Late February this year, Arjun . For me, I had a compete full stop, no writing at all… As I say, for me personally, it’s all or nothing. Mayhap that’s why I never took to writing as a living, or I would be starving… xx

                • Maybe So, Arjun, I suppose by writing, using imagination to come up with ideas, sharing thoughts, it’s what we were all born to do… otherwise our brains would be wired differently… I just remembered a song I loved, and still love of course, If You Could Read My Mind, by Gordon Lightfoot… those lyrics explain so much of how I feel and dream…

  3. whether it be you as LadyP or penpusher, milady, I do enjoy my visits. Your eager mind and insight are compelling. I have thought of Google+ but haven’t as yet set anything up as I rather like to wander about WordPress. x

  5. Thank you for the sharing update, Pen. Felt like I learned more about you. I’ve been unsettled lately, too. But unfortunately just got a new kettle for Christmas, so that can’t be the issue… 🙂

  6. Each path splits, a hair of one become two and onward they travel
    The path is unclear, following the pen, pushing onward
    To nothing is but empty, a slice of something is more
    Slash on…… thanks for sharing

  7. Looks like you are very popular hun!🙂

    Might I suggest you buy a NEW kettle of the same design BEFORE the old one dies???

    It saves a whole lot of hassle!!!🙂

    My kettle is twenty years old, no limescale, but is getting a tad rusty with age!🙂

    You are a good writer hun and it’s a pleasure to know you!🙂

    Love and hugs!

    I’m sort of a all or nothing sort of person too! But totally not in your way. My way is that I go all out for something…ALL OUT and then I don’t just fizzled and disappear..I sort of POOF away. That’s when it’s the nothing part! LOL!
    I’ve been totally addicted to Youtube recently…and I really should start venturing out from my usual blog friend’s blogs…but don’t worry! Only once I’m done catching up!!😀
