The poetry prompt for day seven of Writing 201 is “fingers.”
The form is “prose.”
The device is “assonance.”
My husband and oldest son are potters so guess what I’ve written about today!
The Potter’s Hands
Fingers moving through mud, sliding over the surface, shaping. Pressuring first, then gliding openness. Encouraging growth, upward, outward, from the center. Conjuring form from the formless. Subtly nudging, guiding the nameless to become something with a name. Something useful and cherished. A treasure born of the potter’s gentle caress.
