The Mind Sharpener

#writeclub #writing #character

The blank sheet of brilliant white paper

seemed a heck of a lot smaller

with each turn of the pencil

as it chewed away

the garbled message at the top of the page

with its blunted instruction

was clearer by the end of the scribble

and with each turn in the tool, sharper
