My creation
Was created
In the thoughts of you...

It contains
The memories
All of the smiles we shared too...

If you feel
Deep enough
You can see,

The gently
Carved designs
Made with every inch of me...

When you
Hold it
In your hands,

I hope you feel
The deep earth,
The ocean sands...

I hope you feel
The deep engravings,
As deep as the love from my heart...

I hope you feel
How deeply I care
Come any circumstances
Our friendship will never part.

I wrote this poem about a bowl that I made for my friend. She just passed away last December...So I made a bowl in the memory of her. I am a ceramist and I love ceramic work, so I just incorperated poetry with ceramics ^-^

It's so cool how your head, heart, eyes, hands, and hopes blend together and burst into so many forms of beauty. I really admire you, Merina. (And maybe envy you a little bit, too.)
