To Sketch a Picture

 

To

sketch

a

picture

with

words

you need:

Solid         steel          strings,

A           polished           wooden     neck,

Shining                    tuning                  knobs,

And       a    sturdy,    resonant   body,

Resting   across   the    knees,

Of       worn      out      jeans.

And        calloused         fingers,

Not         dancing,          but          drawing,

Beautiful           clear        strums        into      the

Smoky                         evening                                      air.

With          voices            floating             high          above,

Mingling            with         the          crashing       waves,

And      the      sand      between        your           toes.

And      then      you     might     have   a sketch

Worth                                                       –

Writing                                  –

Down.
