    A Potter’s Clay

    We love to hear from our visitors. Malaysian creative writer Shobana wrote to us and told us about her poetry book Imagination Unchained, from which we chose A Potter’s Clay. It depcits the process of creation in a beautiful way.


    Neither distraction nor a mind unfree
    A tireless preacher he sits unknown that his hands form a task
    A tiresome task some say to the form of his mind
    A vivid picture and the result of a taskmaster

    Some say the hands that mould be the master
    and some say the clay captures the truth of the master
    that it in its form of tardiness rule the mind

    Twirling in dirt it resonates in its beauty yet unfinished
    A slip and it returns to its form of dust
    The chapter of the master his pattern unrelinquished
    The destruction of the clay his dismal of a famished unfed

    Breaking the bond between master and servant
    The potter and the clay jilts each other’s position
    A silent nomination of the victor
    A product of a hand that is not seen as meagre
    A potter’s clay now masked as a sensation.
