Alchemist’s Creations

IMG_7710 (5)

We are just squishy pots of clay
spun and shaped by the master
Starting out as greenware
Aged and dried in the sun
Young and vibrantly smooth …
But we’re not finished
Till baptized in life’s colors
Full of toil and troubles
Only to be fired in life’s kiln
Aged // glazed with experience
Hardened with love’s beautiful finish
Yet, some struggle so hard
that their final hardened glaze
is crackled raku, tried by fire
still beautiful in its own way…
The Alchemist loves them both

Painting: Dwight L. Roth

  1. First of all amazing painting Dwight I didnt know it was a painting at first, thought it was an actual clay pot 😁
    The poem how well it went with the painting and loved how you compared us to that clay shaped by our maker, simply a stunning piece.

  3. This is gorgeously rendered, Dwight! I especially love; “Yet, some struggle so hard that their final hardened glaze is crackled raku, tried by fire still beautiful in its own way.” Yes! 💝💝
