Sculpture Adrift on the Ocean Waves

On the beach

a fallen pine metamorphosed

into a piece of wooden sculpture


the moment’s unintended masterpiece

no one can ever copy


exposed to the four essential elements:

water earth air and fire—

Nature’s medium to sculpt


blended in both simple

and arcane language


some call alchemy


perhaps it’s the fifth element

the most potent of all engaged

behind the scene


the artist with four hands --

his four conduits

to carve


setting his own creation

free to the ocean plume-like waves


unattached

to any form it takes

as it drifts away
