Paused in Place

Paused in Place
Jenny Fitzgibbon 2014 Sculpture on the Edge

Oil feeds the wood bleached to the bone
Hands free the clay while tools find the stone
An artist mind
Guides the questing eye
Paused in place, shapes fly

Green gems the bronze curve sits on wire
Flame blacks the grain with peaceful lines of fire

Touch on the grass edge cuts the sky
Life from a spade as war stomps on by

Life by a thread two dance as one
Coiled from the earth an embrace is never done
