A Pencil Stroke

A Pencil Stroke

A Poem by Spencer Barker

With only but a strike and then a light. 
But there must be more! 
A stroke and then an array of colors,
blue, green, oh what a nice sheen. 
In the land, a covering of trees, a covering of lakes, 
and rivers, for all to see. 
But something is missing! 
A stroke and feathers large and small, blue, and red, and green.
Waterfalls plunder their placing, threatening the breaking 
of pages lacing.
And now the canvas is complete.
