More than a Carpenter

by   
4/19/2012 / Poetry


it was a worthless piece of wood
thrown carelessly
in a pile of rubble
and destined
for the fire

none would consider
that it could become
anything of value
but he saw something different

carefully taking the splintered wood
in his rugged hands
he set to work his design

skillfully chiseling away
the rugged edges
and forging carved beauty
in the remains
the work of art began to take form

it was a labor of love
and he did not rest
until he was finished

after relentless and meticulous toil
it was finally complete

he raised his masterpiece
toward heaven
tenderly admiring
the work of his hands
and whispered, it is good
breathing life upon his new creation

he is more than a carpenter

he is an artist
and a creator
transforming what is ordinary and useless
in the sight of the world
into something of infinite value
