“Grinding Stone Into Clay” | Sydney Poet David Landgrebe

24 Mar

The sound of rain has lost its cozy
I plant my feet in wet boots every day
Picking and digging and turning the soil
In a fantasy of flowers, I paint my Picasso
A lover of words, grinding stone into clay
Wallow in showers of rain every day.

    I think this is one of your best! Short, very evocative and clearly paints the landscaper’s lament!

    Beautiful, David….a poet’s heart, as landsman’s hands.

    Creativity is often challenging and uncomfortable in the process but such things of beauty come from it all that I am continually in awe of what I see all around this world. Many thanks! Shelley

      So true Shelley!
      It seems the more you find out, the more complex and wonderful life can be.
