Origins of a Writer's Group/ Beth Grew's poem

I hope Beth doesn't mind. I thought her poem 'Clay Work' would be a good place to begin.

Clay Work

Sculpting her features

Like her smile and her eyes

Big bright blue pools

Of magic and light

Her smile will be kind

Engaging wonders of life

And soft words that emerge

Will be a sweet song verse

The clay magic's moulded

Has kept beauty beneath

For the creator's eyes only

So marvellous and deep.

Beth says: This poem is about my dad, who makes pots. I have turned the pot into a human that he has sculpted, to show how he interprets his art into beauty.

A meditation on creativity and inspiration? It makes me think of a Neil Young song called 'The Painter'.
