Poetry Magnum Opus

April 13 Potter's Hands


Recommended Posts

When I was a kid and I'd complain about being bored, my Mom's response was "Only boring people are bored. Look around, use your mind, there's adventure everywhere." Then of course, I'd roll my eyes and go off in my funk but her words have always stuck with me. Even in today's shelter in place malaise, I can hear her voice.

Awareness makes me whole,
it gives each moment purpose.
It's the potter that shapes the bowl
to be filled with my next opus.

That's right, Judi. Bored? Use your imagination! 

It's exciting to see the word "opus" used in a poem.
