Much of what we see today

Once was a craft in its infancy

Delights, thrills, touches our heart

Appeal, exciting in every part

Screenplay, song, poem or movie

All have the power to renew me

Blankets knitted or crocheted

With loving care delicately made

A doctor’s skilled hands that glide

In his work, he takes great pride

A roadside mechanic servicing a car

Whether a humble Toyota or a Jaguar

A craft is a skill brought to perfection

By people willing to take direction

Until their craft was whole and complete

Fulfilled and happy, no need to compete

    1. I know, I would have loved to learn pottery. I taught myself to knit and crochet. I crafted my photography and drawing and painting. Hands on experience and so delightful. I think of craftsman from Europe when I think crafts to be completely honest. We start, we learn, we craft what we do into an art form. But that’s just me.

    1. Thank you, that’s how I see it also. I often think of the European Craftsman who spend 30 40 years perfecting their craft and weren’t considered teachers before then. It is astounding how we have moved into automation on nearly ever level, true crafts are nearly a thing of the past.

        1. Oh no, I’m so sorry to hear that. My son is on his second go round and not feeling well. I hope tomorrow brings a better day and you are much improved. xoxo

    1. Thank you Margarita, you always leave me feeling upbuilt and encouraged. I am deeply touched and enriched by all you write. I look forward daily to reading your art. I humbly thank you for your kind words, for right now, it seems they are needed.

  1. Very lovely poem. “… a skill brought to perfection” got me thinking. In the wake of all the automation going on today, which skills will remain as crafts tomorrow. How far will machines go?

    1. A question I’ve pondered many times. I love the renewed interest in “crafts” because many are going back to basics, and I think it’s incredibly important. I often wonder if we lost electricity, how many could possibly survive? It’s a thought!
