Magpie 18

Love pencils.
Don't use'em much

Fresh sharpened pencils
Erect in a porcelain

Like a Manhatten
To the eye!

Thanks for your comment on my last post, Rel. Yes I have lost weight, about 20 or so kg.

I have a little trouble with the scratching sound the pencil makes when I write with it. I do like the fact that I can easily erase it though.

LIked the vowel shift at the end if each stanza in place of a straight rhyme!

I love your poem about the pleasing look of the arrangement of pencils, like the Manhattan skyline. Simple and lovely.
