ATTENTION IPAD USERS!
Apple doesn't like listing me as "Will Shakespeare (poetry blogger)"
to differentiate me from the other guy, although everybody else does.
They took my first book but now won't take new ones. (Go figure.)
Since Smashwords distributes my books to Apple anyway,
just go to my Smashwords author page and download EPUBs from there.
Smashwords provides samples of my books also.

Claymation

Day Number 6:
The Lord took clay from the earth He made.
With thoughtful care
He formed two figures, then He bade
Them rise and breathe.
Within their breasts He placed two flames
To give them life—
To animate their fragile frames
With hopes and dreams,
Perhaps to seek and grow with Him.
Their foolishness
Caused flaming hopes to flicker; dimmed
And darkened hearts,
Each suffering in lonely pain,
Found sacrifice
Alone could end sin’s tragic reign.
Why do we wonder
That our animators find such
Fascination
Now when clay responds to their touch?
