A Lump of Clay

                                                   in the potter's hands
                                           a lump of clay is transformed...
                                                    an object of worth

    Reminds me of Gene McDaniels singing A Hundred Pounds Of Clay. Nice poem.

    I once took a pottery class, and my lump of clay.....well..........not sure it was worthy to anyone but myself by the time I was done....but the experience and pleasure I had was worth a million dollars!! :) Nicely done, Kim!

    I like that one, feels like it has proper secondary meanings, the potter as a mentor, the clay is a pupil, very nice.

    This is all true Kim. In the Potter's hand we become a piece, of great value. Best wishes and one love. Joy Wells

    to breathe some life into clay is nice, when the eye percieves a treasure..

    This is a truly amazing Senryu Kim! I really enjoyed the creativity you exuded within this incredible poem, a fine example of a clever write! The clay assumes the form the potter desires, from which it gains its worth, a beautiful sentiment! I just love this piece, Great Work!!
