The Speed of the Hand

The hand picks up the pen

Beginning to draw

Slow and steady

Simple sketches in a light hand


Then picking up speed

Moving from here to there

As the thoughts gush forth

Filling the pen with the ink of idea


The hand becomes a vortex of movement

Adding the details as the ideas strike

Speeding away

Into another land

With another time


In a trance

The work is produced

While everyone else around the hand

Is still sketching

At the beginning of the road

That the hand just sped down
