There is a Scroll

There is a scroll

all rolled up

laying on a table

or laying in sand

or laying in snow

tightly bound

Thicker than the face of a quarter

but smaller than a ping – pong ball

Suddenly,

slowly

The scroll begins to unroll

at first just barely visible

The paper is so white

The scroll begins to unroll faster

and writing begins to appear

At first just real light

like child scratch

then slowly

more refined

and deeper pressed

The writing turns from

Crayons

to yellow pencils

to mechanical pencils

to muti-colored pens

The writing is cursive and magical

happy and light

The writing continues

and writes more and more

each time

but as time goes on the child scratch

begins to fade

but the muti-colored writing does not notice

The writing continues

and writes more and more

each time

The paper begins to look kinda drab

but this does not influence the writing

it just continues

There is a big burst of color

and soon beside it

another child scratch appears

it does not stay for long

for it has it’s own scroll to write on

The muti-colored writing continues

and writes more and more

each time

Then the pencil writing begins to fade

but the muti-colored cursive does not notice

and continues to write

Child scratch appears once more

and still the muti-colored cursive continues

it continues until

A spill of dark black ink consumes the muti-colored cursive

Then the muti-colored

turns to blue

a sensible color

The writing continues to write

but not as magical anymore

Then just like before

Dark black ink spills onto the scroll

and the cursive

turns to print

and the writing continues to write

but now there is less to write about

The muti-colored cursive begins to fade

but the blue colored print does not notice

and continues to write

Then just like the times before

but more this time

the dark black ink spills

and the blue colored print

turns to

shaky uneven blue colored print

and continues to write

less and less

Then the blue cursive begins to fade

bu the shaky uneven blue colored print does not notice

and continues writing less and less

until

the writing stops

and the scroll stops unrolling

in fact it actually rolls up

To thicker than the face of a quarter

but smaller than a ping – pong ball

laying on a table

or laying in sand

or laying in snow

tightly bound

There is a scroll

all rolled up

and forgotten
