The Multi-colors of Inspiration

To B....

multi-colored gel pens
  fill the withering wicker container,
a small scuffed blackened case sits ajar
 with the twisted edge
of a pair of reading glasses
  daunting into the open,
surrounding the fake mahogany table
  inquiring minds seek,
with scattered paper and aged text books,
   precariously positioned
she sits,
  fading spots of blonde hinting at age,
from algebra to earth and space
 british literature and physics,
it all combines into
   the mesh of the day,

what is given can not
 be measured in weight or length,
   only calculated with time,
the contents of which
 are complex and simplistic,

love given is a seed,
  that in time with care
blooms into resplendent wildflowers,
 resounding the essence of
the efforts given in study,

standing out in the
   crowds of life,
standing up for what
 ought to be,
reveling in the creation
  God hath so delicately placed
within the atmosphere of space,

when the fluroscent lights
 switch to darkness and the
  soft creak of the
closing door
   is whispered,
gel pens are strewn
  across the mahogany table,
remaining poised for the cycle
 to embark again.
