The sculptor

The sculptor

A Poem by daydreamer
"

this is a beautiful story that came to my mind today while i was wondering what to write when i am down with fever

"

A vagabond stopped at the sight of a boulder

To rest by the shade as the sun grew older

A small nap refreshed his imagination

His fingers fiddled with his tool kit

Eyes shut faint smile crossed his lip!

 

Within minutes he began chiselling

Master craftsman at work,

Even red hot sun did not dare

To disturb him with various shades.

Full Moon with the army of stars

Could not lure him to rest.

 

Seasons played hide and seek

Nothing deterred the artisan at work.

And lo! Appeared a beautiful Princess

In the lifeless rock which adored the place

For a million of years without any face.

 

With a feel of content on his countenance

He and his tools rested on lush green grass,

Gods passing by in the clouds amazed at the

Wonderful lifeless statue below,

Bestowed it with the essence called, life!

 

Handsome prince riding on his horse

Stopped at the sight to behold!

Love bloomed in the air

Prince proposed and princess never opposed.

 

Before riding away she noticed

This man with soiled torn robe

Lying on the ground with his tools

Pity dawned in her mind

Dropped few gold coins before she rode.

 

The vagabond woke up a while later

To find his art work disappear

And noticed the gold coins glitter

He took a deep breath and sighed

Walked away empty handed without regrets!

 

Gods above cried, dark clouds went dry

Nothing disturbed this scantily clad man.

His eye were busy searching perhaps

For another lonely boulder

To offer them his life.

He walked towards infinity...........

I think this would make a far better short story than a poem. The imagery and storyline are wonderful! However, the flow and rhythm of this poem is just off. It feels like you're trying to force it into a form that it just doesn't belong in.....I think you have the beginnings of a very interesting story so don't give up!

A man creates love, then loses it to a Prince .. He has no regret .. only hope, to find love again .. ..

Interesting tale .. .. Jasmine
