Written for:  The Twiglets #55 – “new pencils”

newly sharpened
yellow number two pencils
fine lines

“New pencils,
get your new pencils!”
desperate vendor

Knowing when a pencil
has been sharpened just enough
to write with thin strokes
without the point breaking
is an art.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
