Fresno County Public Library Poetry Contest
The pencil has been around for a very long time, and its usage is and has always been our first computer.
It documents our thoughts and feelings, our business transactions, our whimsical drawings.
It corrects itself with little difficulty, bringing with it a natural ease and comfort.
No matter if there is a hurricane, a tornado, or a massive storm that breaks away the electricity, we know we can rely on the pencil.
We can chew on it, bite it, and scrape away its coloring…but it still remains useful and reliable.
The pencil…our first connection with feelings.
