Very moving poem. He is the Potter & we are the clay. May this poem be a blessing to many and it was for me. Lovely style.

Utterly and absolutely fantabulous! Brilliant piece of work! Loved it, and aside from rhyming beautifully, it made so much sense, and was done in simple language to understand...and was a beautiful piece of artistic words, especially with those last little lines after each verse. Just Beautiful. This is a Poet of great expertise' and distinction! A+ !

I've had thoughts, at times, that I have sat at the Potter's wheel with my kids and tried to make perfect vessels of them, only to find that, like me, they can't be. They fall short of my hopes and dreams just as I fall short of my Father's hopes and dreams, but, forever and always, love remains. I'm not too knowledgeable about poetry but I liked this one. Thanks for writing it.

I understand how God feels. I, too, have felt like I'm the potter with my kids on the wheel as I try to mold them into perfection only to be disappointed, just as I so often disappoint God with my imperfection. Though I'm not a poet, I liked this one. It expressed a thought and somehow managed to make it all rhyme. How do you do it???

Well done! I just love themes like this.
I also loved this poem - and I DO write poetry. Good rhyme, good thought, wonderful construction. Thanks

I rarely read poetry but this one caught my eye and spoke to me. It was beautifully written - great message- and I loved it!

This whole thing is wonderful--the rhyme, meter, and structure all highly skilled--but the 5th stanza in particular stopped me in my tracks with a resounding "YES!" Just amazing, and the resolution is lovely.

Terrific! I'm so glad I stopped by to read this poem. It's truth is undeniable. I enjoyed it immensely. Thanks. Blessings, Jo
Smooth, fluent, touching....not to mention well constructed! This especially touched me since my own current circumstances are reminding me of certain flaws and scars deep in my heart. God is still working - right - and will FINISH what He starts!

Thanks for this - it was encouraging to me. :-)

This is really well done. A presentation of a deep truth in simple verse is a great idea because you know that most people will read it and not glaze over its message.
Such a beautifully crafted poem! I love the sentences that set apart each stanza. They remind me of the use of "Selah" in the Old Testament.
