Pencil and Paper

May 6, 2008
I look over to see a pencil starring at a piece of paper

It rarely ever moves

Sometimes it dances along the top of the paper

Not making a single markbut it appears to the rest of the class and the teacher that it is

Sometimes it maneuvers to one corner of the paper

Where it likes to doodle strange little people, hearts, stars, and bubble letters

And yet every one in a while a spark ignites

Thoughts and feelings are recorded on the blank but doodled paper

But still it isn't anything to share with the rest of the class
