Stone – Making a Vase

Making a Vase

If you give yourself
to the will of the Potter,
a humble vessel
vaguely transparent
like a cloisonné dreamscape,
he will start carving

as if by magic
on your dim translucent heart
cameos of grace,
etchings, engravings 
with patient plique-à-jour of
angel-gilded truth.

Verre églomisé
of gold leaf and lavender,
poetry in flesh.
His love will make you
glow like a masterpiece by
Emile Gallé.
