Jeannie Carlson: Marble Egg

Spring '13 TOC


Vanilla ice cream limestone

Crystallized with chocolate swirls

And compacted into ovum shape

Shares its cold climate in my hand,

Rolling smoothly from my fingertips to my wrist

And back again.

Hard and highly polished,

The silent sculpted antique

Gestates creative thought

Until it takes flight

And hatches magic.
