Poem Text: 

Parent as Potter

 

A parent’s hands,

as if cupped in prayer,

must hold spinning clay

with just the right touch.

 

Too tightly,

and clay fountains

            over the hands

                        to escape the pressure.

 

Too loosely,

and  the  clay becomes   a    shapeless       blob.

Indistinct

Useless

Flat.

 

You must watch   very closely,

      because your pot  takes shape

   in a blur.

 

Prices are negotiable on original art.
