"What can I say? I'm home-schooled!"

I am a pencil.
Across a white paper field I plant.
Weaving up and down. Sowing words and ideas.
My work could last for a hundred years; calling out through the ages.
Or in the swoosh of an eraser disappear, leaving blank white pages.

I don't know why, but in my head, I get a image of a blank piece of paper, and the pencil flies over the paper, and the paper is magically filled with beautiful images. It's a strange emotion I never got before, but I like it! Five stars!!!!!!!!!!*****
