More Arvon writing, thanks to VASW- Escher the inspiration, subject is hands and uniqueness



Soft lead pencil
Gently guided by hand
Crafts the lines of its echo
Smudging as it draws
Leaving gossamer timelines
Shimmering on the paper

Graphite grey and gleaming
Flesh drawn, flesh drawing
Pencil tip to wrist rises to knuckles
Knuckles to fingers
Fingertip to pencil
Endless crafting

Looping of life
The thumb of the left
Stubbier than the other
As if a sleight of hand
Has erased the tip
An accident of birth

Lead crafts life
And life crafts lead
One leads
One follows
Tracing each other

With love to Escher, a constant inspiration in my life
