Ballpoint Dancing

The grace of my ballpoint pen
a gentle dance
between my fingers and paper
we tango out
a grocery list
we waltz out
my planner
we line dance
another poem
my ballpoint pen and I
we find time for each other
as we wait for the movie,
in line, or in the morning
Pluck it from the coffee cup
or snuggle it in my back pocket
It is the greatest gift
It finishes my sentences
and keeps its promises
my little ballpoint pen
