Like a pencil drawn hero
on the margin of my life,
a stick figure clothed in wishes,
my naked limbs are covered.

They tell my story better than my fiction.
Objects that portray what might have been,
a collection of thin lines
that escape punctuation and diction.

Symbols of thought and aspirations
drawn from the fire of my life,
they light my temple with the incense of memories,
the fragrance of loves I have had.

Like smoke they rise to the heavens,
offering prayers for those yet desired.
The alter littered with sweet offerings left with hope,
promises I have kept and those yet to be fulfilled.

Pencil marks.

My son has been painting a number of cyborgs for an upcoming show. I have always wondered at what point is the line crossed when the person no longer fit the definition of a "human" and would a person know it. I have two complete titanium knees and a titanium plate in my neck. I guess I on my way to finding out!

I wish my poor elderly Mother would have had surgery and something done for her knees long ago.


Wow, your Son is talented and a cutie too.

To anyone hesitating to have the surgery I can only say that I personally am so thankful that I had it done and didn't wait any longer. My son is 36 and obviously gets his good looks from his father.

Ummm...You made me smile...such a simple little thing that leaves tracks of a very complex nature...

I too love my #2 soft, graphite strand...sometimes...I love the other end even more...that chance to rub away a word or line...Too bad we cant use a pencil to erase some of the things said in the heat of foolishness....and then regretful...apologize...hoping that apology will erase the hurtful like a good #2 pencil...

Perhaps it's wiser to just let some things remain unsaid..

Thank you for giving me this glimpse into who GrayEagle really...is...




YouSir
