Pottery - Poterie (French) - Alfarería (Spanish)

Poetry - pottery of a word
approaching joining my earth
cracked hammered out transformed little by little
humility of a hand watering moulding my humus
and sometimes a comforting wing
caress of the feather on my life
caress of life on my feather.

Poésie - poterie d’une parole
qui approche rejoint ma terre
craquelée martelée transformée peu à peu
humilité d’une main arrosant modelant mon humus
et parfois une aile réconfortante
caresse de la plume sur ma vie
caresse de la vie sur ma plume.

Poesía – alfarería de una palabra
acercando uniendo mi tierra
agrietada martilleada transformada poco a poco
humildad de una mano regando moldeando mi humus
y a veces un ala reconfortante
caricia de la pluma sobre mi vida
caricia de la vida sobre mi pluma.
