Ink Flow

I am testing the flow of this pen
The flow of my words through my head, out my heart, down my arm
The flow of the ink,
The flow of my soul onto dry yellow paper without life.
The flow of thoughts never ending through a pen that has good flow onto poor paper.

The Little Things

Walking across campus today, weaving my way through the unhurried crowds of students and hopping puddles, I realized that today I was truly happy. It was a wonderful revelation to have. Despite the fact that I have two books to read and a test to study for, the internet going out in the dorms, and having no food I could safely eat in the dining all I was completely and utterly happy and content. Part of what carried me through the day were some of the littlest things ever. I got to leave work 15 minutes early, I bought an amazing hat for $0.50 at the school rummage sale, I bought two new pens in bright green and bright orange (I can't wait to get the other colors) and I acquired some wonderful dark chocolate. Also I discovered June Jordan and Alice Walker in my English class today and I can't wait to read more of their works as both woman are amazing writers and poets and are deeply moving. I am more content today than I have been in a rather long time and I hope that I can maintain this feeling in the weeks and months to come.
