While Waiting for Inspiration
Sharpening Pencils by a Sunny Window

All my Pencils
Sharpened ;-)

If it had no pencil
Would it try mine—
Worn—now—and dull—sweet,
Writing much to thee.
If it had no word,
Would it make the Daisy,
Most as big as I was,
When it plucked me?

Emily Dickinson

  1. Seeing all of these pencil shavings takes me back to my childhood. The electric sharpener I have now doesn't produce such elegance. Lovely shot indeed.

  2. I have a couple of pencils, and a sharpener... somewhere in my drawers. I can't remember the last time I've used a pencil though.

  3. Fantastic post! You have a nice blog!
    Would you like to follow each other? Follow me and I'll follow you back!

  4. Love the composition and the light in this!!

  5. I love writing in pencil and like to have several lying around.

  6. I love the photo -- and how enigmatic the poem is!
