Two years and two days and 10,000 pencils,
No tracing or reprints or cheap, plastic stencils.
The dots turn to lines, the lines turns to figures,
The transfer of symbols from my brain to my fingers.
A mark on the page meant the white was now tainted,
With another damned hope that this time I’ll make it.
My passions run under my detailed bridge,
With the promise they’ll say, “Let’s stick that on the fridge!”
My name is Gregg Savage and, every night when the house is quiet, I write and publish a free children’s story at dailytales.com.au for you to share and enjoy.
