THE SANDPAPER EFFECT

Freshly cut baring generational rings, abrasive aspirational approach.
Time, the hands that sands strenuously, smooths the surface without 
any breaks. The smaller rings brings contrast and depth to the naked eye, 
a finer sandpaper accentuates the new rings appearance,
it's a representation from whence it beget. Blowing the sawed dust and debris, 
a damn near finished product, more rings appeared. Since polishing began
those two new rings would be sealed in attention, 
making this product grand on any scale. A lot of love sanded alongside 
time's hands, working diligently towards a masterpiece sculpture. 
It's beyond fun attending those new rings. With my children, we started sanding, 
when our grandbabies came we were polished and ready, to show off those new rings... Poetically, I write about a love, I just can't explain!

    The craft of the carpenter melds along with the craft of you as a writer.....and the love incorporated into this poem is magical and sanded down to be as smooth as velvet. What a lovely poem...... the men in my family are loving fathers (grandfathers) uncles, and examples too....and are also good with a hammer, nail and sandpaper. I think there may be a link? I love this piece...it speaks to me!

    Wow...your comment is touching. You have a lot of good men around you taking care of their rings!.. I did some construction when O was younger, but I learned the Sun is unforgiving. Thanks for the kind words!

    I just read your recent comment. I didn't know there was a "sand" contest. "Sandpaper" just popped into my head while writing yesterday, which is kinda weird now that I am reading a bunch of poems with sandpaper as part of the theme. Hey, you took a unique angle for the contest. You approached a topic that someone could turn into a very stale poem, and you created a lively, meaningful piece. The ending is so cool .... I think if we attempt to define it, we belittle it and ourselves.

    Thanks... Your last sentence is exactly what I was thinking. I really can't explain how my world light up for those 2 little girls. With my children, I would've laid my life on the line for their wellbeing. With the grands, I'm inspired live and continuously love!

    I may have to take mine out of the contest after reading this one. But I was only trying to deliver an important message this time around only to those who receive. If its not about sex, evil, and etc its ignored. Anyway, this is here is real fam. I like how you take your personal experience and share it amongst the world.

    You can't take it out...it's a burner... It's been a beautiful re-linking of the chain, for me, which was severed. I enjoyed my duties as a Father, Provider, Protector, and Teacher! Thanks fam!

    Marlon what a great write and unique approach to the contest. Gotta say when you look back on it, the sandpaper had an important role to play and love remained. All the best for the contest with this gem ;)

    your poetry needs no sandpaper, Marlon, but there is a lot of aspects in this world today that does...this is so clever, your personification so creative...
