I was inspired to take this picture by a poem, "Advice to Writers" by Billy Collins.
"From a small vase, sparkling blue, lift
a yellow pencil, the sharpest of the bouquet,
and cover pages with tiny sentences
like long rows of devoted ants
that followed you in from the woods."
From Sailing Alone Around the Room. I find Collins poetry very accessible but not the least bit shallow.
