Ligneous trunk perceived by EYES
Captured spirit discerned by HEART
patiently carving and chiseling away
dark bark holding captive the object d’art.
Woody splinters falling away
Beauty limb by limb revealed
Stretching arm and leg
coming fully alive
from deep slumber slowly awakening.
Tools laid down
Craftsman stepping back
looking onto the beauteous form
softly gleaming in the light.
Gently releasing from HANDS
The sculptor confidently let go
Into its fullness to grow,
The object d’art.
