THE POTTER SHAPES THE CLAY : poetry compt. entry 2016

October 15, 2016

The Potter Shapes the Clay


The potter shapes the clay

Firm hands moulding

Smoothing, folding

Imbuing their creation

With raw imagination

The potter shapes the clay.


The painter shapes the colours

Turning hue into form

A blank space they transform

Sharing their unique view

With just yellow, red and blue

The painter shapes the colours.


The singer shapes the melodypottery-51

Sweet voice soaring

Demanding, imploring

Emotion from sound

Expression profound

The singer shapes the melody.


The poet shapes unreality

Lending subtle wonder

Tearing the mundane asunder

Speaking to the heart

Touching the soul through their art

The poet shapes unreality.
