A TEA POT
With just 2 days of school left,
I am so relieved John's ceramic piece
made it through the kiln in time.
Such a creative force, and natural artist,
my autistic student worked a piece of clay,
shaped and formed it into
an original design, a shape and color
for his very first tea pot.
I love the color glaze he chose
for the final firing.
A tea pot is born!

The pink lotus (nelumbo nucifera),
the most sacred of all lotus species,
is getting ready to bloom.
Each part of the pink lotus
(roots, stem, petals, leaves, seeds)
has medicinal and metaphysical properties,
with effects that are narcotic and euphoric.
My favorite part is the visual beauty
of this magnificent plant.
