INKTOBER 2018: Breakable, Day 20

Art and Poem by Miguel Guerreiro Lourenço

Inktober's Breakable prompt led me to do some Lord of the Rings fanart! Here are the shards of Narsil and a poem about a poor, insecure potter. Below is the transcription:

he is a potter in an old

spider-web covered shop.

his hands are steady

only when molding clay,

his foot gingerly pacing

on the pedal, the plate

spinning softly.

the stillness in the air

leaves with the mind

coming from the open

door. he's afraid,

carrying the pot

to the high shelves,

afraid someone will

break another piece

of him. the dust pan

is filled to the brim.

the pot stands atop the

shelf, unbroken.
