Wasted Pottery

Lovely pottery
Just for cookery

She bought one
To try

She cooked
Something delicious

He commented
'Uncooked pot'

She's broken
Into shards

    Beautiful poem, dear Ma'm.
    Women are so fond of exquisite pottery. To cook a delicious recipe in the lovely pot is an art. A careless comment from a man can shatter the whole endeavour.
    I would have loved to taste this dish...... :) ......top stars.
    Thank you for your fabulous comments on my poems. With lots of love to you.

    Though the potteries are broken yet these are good for cooking. Food is something delicious. A beautiful poem on pottery is nicely inscribed in nutshell. T

    Indeed our words can ruin as well as build. It all depends as to how we chose our words. Good metaphorical imagery and insight.
