Sobered, the clay laughed,

and bitterly it asked

if that came with ease –

no solemn song

might ever heed its wrong.

  1. There’s an ethical level to this that is quite powerful, as well as fine use of language. Much said with little, something I’m seldom able to do myself and so admire all the more.

  2. I think of the human spirit in this piece – kind of a mixed bag an insouciance mixed with the brevity of hardship

    Well penned
