A Message from Your Pencil (poem)
This month we're talking about our favorite office supplies.
Goodness, there are so many I love: index cards, paper clips, journals journals journals!
|"junk" journal where I keep|
Very. Important. Thoughts.
And what about post-it notes?? I use them everywhere and for EVERYTHING!
|a post-it vision board (of sorts)|
for a wip!
But the one office supply that has most captured my imagination is the pencil. Please enjoy this poem with a (simple) message. Pencil thanks you for reading. :)
