Magicians with Polymer Clay

I know, you never intended to be in this world.

But you’re in it all the same.

So why not get started immediately.

I mean, belonging to it.

There is so much to admire, to weep over.

And to write music or poems about.

Bless the feet that take you to and fro.

Bless the eyes and the listening ears.

Bless the tongue, the marvel of taste.

Bless touching.

You could live a hundred years, it’s happened. 

Or not.

I am speaking from the fortunate platform

of many years,

none of which, I think, I ever wasted. 

Do you need a prod?

Do you need a little darkness to get you going?

Let me be as urgent as a knife, then,

and remind you of Keats,

so single of purpose and thinking, for a while,

he had a lifetime.

I don't know about you, but my modelling efforts are pretty amateurish. But these artists really are magicians! I hope you all have a wonderful 2015. Thank you for following along despite the paucity of posts.

I love it when I see a new video from you. I am always very impressed. The pictures and words really complement each other. I found that I really connected with the words in this post. Hope everything is going well for you my dear friend.
