"The Honing"

I honed my colored pencils
in hopes
of drawing my next masterpiece...
of a honey colored hue
of straw bales
complete with a scarey scarecrow
and a raven atop his straw hat
of course!
Or a heather filled meadow
NOT!
It would be something very abstract
like the mask
I recently drew.
Or a face found behind some scumbling
which formed leaves
or a heart hidden in there somewhere
A pixie perhaps?
A dragonfly
or something only I see.
All images on my doodle pad right now.

Today's inspiration was provided by "The John Tesch Radio Show". The word of the day was "hone". I just couldn't figure out how to enter the contest. Wonder if I would have won?

Your challenge of the day should you decide to accept it is to come up with something with the word "hone" as I did....
"I honed my colored pencils in hopes of drawing my next masterpiece." was the sentence I came up with then turned into this poem. Let me know what you come up with.

I honed my muscles when I went for a long walk with my friend, Dorothy today.
