Taxi Cab Yellow, Chartreuse, And Dark Blue - Poem by Rhonda Baker


You sit at the bench with your gather and pipe
With all the anticipation of your creations new life
In the garage all the color bits you have choose
Praying this one goes smoothly, not like the other five woes
Taxi cab yellow, chartreuse and dark blue
Will the vision you have finally come true?
With a touch of a bit; you begin to spin
Like the threads from a spider, caught in the wind
Adding each bit one by one
Working like a spider till your work is done
Then into the glory to melt it all in
A gather of clear, then blow it out thin
Put in a neck; it's still holding tight
Jack and paddle the base, the kick ups just right
and work on the neck,
Being patient so it doesn't wreck
Its all come together, all our hard work is done...
We'll put it in the window to bring joy to someone

(the colors are used in glass blowing, and was a difficult piece to create)
