Prompt Tuesday (Image 12)

Hearing the Hammer 

My father once told me
he wanted to sculpt--
to release the hidden treasure
sleeping in the stone.
But our backyard in suburbia
wouldn't accommodate a grand adventure
and he didn't have the time.

Da Vinci.
I cannot look upon their work
without feeling
my father's hand upon my own
to pick up the chisel--
to breathe life
into his desire.
