Explosion of Infinite Words

Reyna Milene Martinez 1985 (Acapulco)



A pen standing still
Rescued by the movement of my hand
Unable to speak a word
Until the ink flows on paper.

Having no life of its own
As I grasp it to create an everlasting story
Ready to express what I cannot say
Making its mark on the world for eternity.

Expressing my thoughts on paper
Solid metal finding it's voice
Black lava flowing at the speed of light
Coming together to create a symphony.

At last I find true happiness, without saying a word.
