Writing | Poetry | Resilience | Positivity | Hope

Apples, oranges, and emptiness rides for free

Each coffee routes
steps that run
a trail​ off
the page.

There are really few hours
in 28,​000 days.​

Some​ belittle me,
others I help to ​last,
in thoughts of golden sap,
clinging to faded wash,

shorting my mind, heat shrinking
over the weight​ of finishing.

Pencils and poems, both need good homes.

NOW IS THE TIME TO WRITE AND SHINE! Photo by Sean Cordes

Free to Good Poem:

One smartly used pencil:

Strong, stable, and sensitive but with a firm grip; like hugging a Golden Bear, riding a Palomino, or flying a Blackwing over the Ticonderoga.

I am well-experienced at documentation, yet still equally adept, at mixing it up — I love spinning a good yarn into a comfortable sweater.

In time I may wear down a bit, especially if things get crampy, slippery, and tense. But I will always nub you.

This in heart, hand, and mind, I am well-scripted, but can be kind of hard to handle at times, and don’t mean to poke.

Sometimes my tip breaks too….
But I am still sharp as a tack, and am really quite very good at erasing the things that have pass…
