Little Kayano

 She conjures with wax, makes it sing

through fingers deft, artful and lithe;

engaged thus, she sees each form spring

livid, star-forged, as though alive –

- liquid, fierce – her focus playing

around each fold. She nurtures blithe,


joyous thoughts as her hands caress,

oblivious, her face a mask.

Nothing intrudes to provoke stress:

even the wax does all she asks.

Sublime! She works on, feeling blessed.

no tags no labels take it as it is

Martin, I like the gentleness of this. It evokes the serenity of a japanese garden - another art form.

An acrostic for Stella. She recently told me that she loves sculpting with wax, and this poem practically wrote itself.
