The Point Is

The Point Is
Gin-Nie Tanner Smith, August 6,2009, Copy Right 2009

I love simple wooden pencils.
The organic feel of it in my fingers,
The tenuous gliding across crisp paper,
The rhythmic, soft scratch as words are formed,
The grain of the wood from which the graphite resides,
The sharp point kept on my instrument of communication,

[Hata Bildir]
