My daughter has the book of poetry by Rupi Kaur, called “Milk and Honey.”  Oh my.  The words.  The meaning. The feelings.

I used to teach high school English and still tutor students occasionally. So my heart beats excitedly when I read something like this. The fact that a teenager bought a book of poetry is astonishing to me, and I can only hope that Rupi Kaur is revitalizing a love of poetry around the world.  What a wonderful, wonderful thing.

I wrote this poem (which is actually missing the last 2 lines) with a Tombow Fudenosuke Twin Tip pen. This pen is fabulous. The two tips have a beautiful soft flex, and I think I prefer the grey tip to the black tip.  One pen with 2 lovely brush tips….what more could you ask for?

Here are the affiliate shopping links to Rupi Kaur’s book and this brush pen, plus the Rhodia Lined paper I used to write. You can click on the pictures to see them in my Amazon store and learn more about them.  I think they would be the perfect Valentine gift….or any kind of gift! Enjoy!

      Thank you Vickie! The best way to get started is to find some brush pens and smooth paper. Also I recommend my worksheets… Bundle 1 for large brush pens or Bundle 2 for small brush pens is where beginners should start.
