Scrapings of dried blood

Like Lazarus restored, rise

In hands of potter

Vase glazed, colors vibrant swirl

Dizzying beauty beheld

  1. Thank you for writing such a beautiful poem. Your words are a thing of beauty on many levels that encompass the experience of not only the vase as it is now, but the origin of the vase, the pulling of the walls, the spinning of the wheel. It is like you were able to capture the entire story of the life of the vase. You are always able to say so much in few words. You have an incredible gift!

    • I am glad that I was guided to “listen” to God’s Spirit, and capture unknowingly some of the origin of your vase–that’s a huge blessing, so thank you for sharing!! Here’s hoping we may do more collaborations of potter and poet 🙂 Much love, E ❤

      • Isn’t it fantastic when we allow ourselves to be in the flow of creativity and let go 😉 I find the best creations often result from that! I love collaborations, and I am grateful for the opportunity! Much love and blessings to you!

        • It’s so true that some of the best work comes when we let go and let it happen naturally, or spiritually–whatever. I didn’t think I was going to get something for the vase–after we’d discussed that this wasn’t the Easter-y one, which I’d written for but didn’t post/share with you. So I was surprised and blessed when I looked at it again yesterday, and the new/replacement words fell out onto the page 🙂 I was pretty jazzed, I admit!
