Rendering the Lead

Creation: Genesis;            
a graphite shaft emptying            
minerals of extreme            
A carbon plowshare              
folding flaky seed              
into a sheet of grain            
An aphotic rod  
archs God from His Source;              
redefines nothingness            
a contoured semblance            
from all formlessness            
as it was in the Beginning            
How intricate His hands            
divide bare emptiness                
into solid definition              
Kaolinite and wax              
extruded into lead              
Create her over again            
From Ashes to Ashes;              
and Dust to Dust
; an            
Artist Rendering the Lead            
From His extra rib            
smudges Her own;            
giving Life by Breath            
Sits back to rest, views            
all He has done        
in Love and Gratitude      
" It is very good "            
Drawing by my ever-talented            
Best Friend and Muse, JohnnyBlaze
