The Clay Pot

the clay pot
floating on water,
slowly sinks
closer to the bottom
which, when it hits
it breaks
releasing its contents
into the waves.
the pot is plain
not gilded 
or decorated in any way
it is what it is,
a vessel
destined to break.
at first the water will seem dark,
because it is very deep,
but with time
one can discover
in the water you are free.
free to swim
in the endless calm
of an eternal sea.

  1. This is very good, has it’s own special rhyme and pattern, a rhythm that flows like the water below it.
