The Kiln

I can see the potter's hand when looking at your face.
Each gentle feature not by man could such a thing create.
I watch in awe as you sleep, this cherub from my flesh.
A most precious gift he gave to me he knew 'fore she drew breath.
I know nothing but to stand rendered in my awe.
In this role that I have granted me by God.
I wonder eyes how did you see before you saw her face?
And heart I wonder how'd you beat 'fore the kiln yielded that day?
What the potter's hand had made.

    Sheree, Welcome to Poety Soup. I like this metaphor. Nothing more precious than a newborn; expecting our third grandchild in January. Nice work. STF: My daughter-in-law's best friend, Sheree is expecting in January also.
