The Pottery Mug

The mug is blue glazed
with a thumbprint on the handle
and the slight wobble of a learner's touch.
I drink from it every day,
coffee sweet with memories:
the shy smile of the creator's gifting
and my answering, joyous hug.
I could buy mass-produced perfection,
but I'd rather live with love.
