Drawing Block Beach

Crafted of lead 

Scratched against paper 

Of curling and cursive doodles

Etched into its smooth surface


Its shading lightens and darkens

Its intensity changing as the pencil

A perfect fit upon the canvas


A cocoon swing chair 

Sits on the left 

A wooden cabana 

Nestled in the right 


They balance on a lever

Like a seaside seesaw 


Pebbles of various sizes

Littered across the shores

Watching your footsteps


Clouds surround

The smoldering sun above

Too afraid to shroud it


Not the most picturesque 

Nor very skillfully sketched

But it suffices all the same 


This freshly crafted page 

On drawing block beach.
