Clay Pots

Clay pots

Terracotta clay pot

holds it’s earthen life

allowing growth to form

only by tender care

by the caretaker

can this life bloom.

Once the vessel is cracked

by misuse, or abusive handling

like Humpty Dumpty

the vessel cannot be glued.

Only when the shattered pieces

are discarded can change happen

A new vessel

placed on the potters wheel

taking a new form

As the life spins back in

this vessel is reinforced

By the potters handling

Becoming a new creation
