A Seafaring Stranger

                                                                                                                                          dream #2:

                                         ... a seafaring stranger

                                                                       ... left a crystalline vase on the beach

                        ... your new world is inside he whispered




 

This beautiful vase was both created and photographed by Peter: opopots.blogspot.com

  2. Your words have captured something that I feel at the deepest level when I make a pot, and it is probably the thing that urges me to make more.

    With potting there is first the making, then there is a time of surrender. The pot is given to the fire, and is reborn there and made complete. When I take a still warm pot from the kiln I feel that I hold a new world in my hands. A new life. I suspect that you may feel this way when you form a poem on a page.

    Thank you so much Teresa.

  3. The photo and the verse are just the right complement to the pot.

  4. That's beautiful. A wonderful example of how the right words can enhance and deepen one's appreciation of an image. I admired the pot and the photograph before, but now I love it.
