The clay itself is worthless
Until the Artist does employ
His standards in reshaping,
A start, a turning point -
A new vessel

The wheel and the clay must be
Balanced and aligned
So as the wheel moves
The clay does stay confined -
Centred and still

The hands of the Potter
Hold the tools that will shape
Drops of water do make pliable
The clay as to create -
Transformation

The clay is slowly reshaped
Spread out in its own form
A base is then established
While the rest is stretched out more -
Formation

There are two types of vessels
One is open, one is closed
Both are useful in the eye
Of the Potterís will composed -
Purpose

An open vessel created
Portrays an open heart
Where the content is exposed
Free to flow and to impart -
Love and joy

A closed vessel created
Portrays a heart thatís capped
And when opened is a reservoir
For the many who do lack -
Peace and strength

Each vessel type created
Has value nothing less
Than to serve the Divine Potter
Who fashioned with purpose -
His blessed
