My Pencil Runs

                                                My pencil plays in my hand....

                                       Outside a card house that can barely stand...

                                             I sketch a paper train on the wall...

                                        Watch it travel from in a frame to the hall...

                                      It passes through pictures from one to another...
                                   
                                     From black and white scenes to colors that flutter...
                               
                                            The card house falls as the train pulls in...

                                      And the path of my pencil tears a paper not thin...

    I have several strong reactions to your poem. It is good. it has more than one layer. It made me smile! Thanks.

    Original and entertaining! The images are brilliant!

    You have a cool concept going on here, Michael. The ending was a little unexpected for me. Very intriguing. Hey, I think this is one of your better poems!(only my opinion -- maybe, it is one of my favourites of yours because you play between heaviness and light).

  1. Date: 10/16/2012 1:56:00 PM
    The imagery was really cool and imaginative. A very unique write. My favorite type.
