Pursuing the poetical, paradoxical, metaphorical, lyrical, artistical, majestical, and mystical.

Poet of Pottery

His hands
shape clay into
mugs, teapots, planters,
and bowls

For three months I've
watched his hands mold
magic

ancient earthen magic
lifting
raising
forming
without effort it seems

lumps of clay
centered on the wheel
wait to connect with
his heart and hands

intimate knowledge
blends with
intimate touch

transformation begins
with strength and
finishes with a caress
