the kiln is always hungry

madly – maple seed
twirls – spawned by axial clock
caught – spider cuts web
opaque glass – wheel’s drone silenced
dawn creeps – wet clay unfinished

hem dew washed – golden
brow kissed – dried flower crown dance
unabashed – lady
my muse – in cool morn shadows
straddles lap – silence broken

The Daily Post prompt
d’Verse prompt

Author’s note: I combined two prompts and two styles of poetry. Each stanza is a Tanka of 5-7-5-7-7 syllables and 22 words to complete a 44-word Quadrille.
