142.To the potter


Potter, what are you doing?

You have made pots
Big and small,
Thick and thin,
Round and flat,
Now do something new.

Potter, make a pitcher
That can hold water
Good enough to quench
The thirst of humanity.

Make a plate big enough
To hold food for all,
A bowl that never goes empty,
A spoon that reaches the lips 
Of all those born 
Without a silver spoon.

Potter, do something new,
Do something so different
That no potter
Ever has to do anything.

Good poem Onkarji!! Your poems always ask for something new, creative or innovative - just to break the routine and to bring out something interesting!! :)
