Granite Birth by Rowena M Love

Granite Birth by Rowena M Love

for Ronald Rae

Art and faith mate to make sculpture
from blushing Corrennie granite.
Sweaty effort of conception,
rhythmic chisel, panted breath,
labour’s pain soon forgotten
in tonnes of stunning beauty born.
Swaddled with shadows and ideologies,
breastfed on dreams,
each statue cries to be heard.
