transcendent symbol

adorned with a powerful grace

carries dreams on the wind

charm of princes and peasants

imbued with a lunar translucence

skilled consummate fingers of orient

coaxing the light from a stone

given down to your hands

wishing only your reverence

the warmth of your palms

irresistibly drawn to reach back

through the artisan ages

and find understanding

inanimate amulet wisdom

beheld in the carve and the curve

of its muscular splendor

its intricate brawn

feel it coming to life

touch its courage
