A Lump of Clay

A formable lump of clay,

sprung from the earth

more or less formed than many

of less or much more worth

the elements within are one,

though emerged from different lands,

and a certain profundity exists in each

debilitating grain of sand

that keeps the clay from rising perfect

within the creator’s hands.

And the storms hover and melt away

superficial textures fine,

but the artist certainly carves them again

with the same love in his eye,

and the lump of clay grows even finer

with the calamities of time.
