Words by Pip Trentham in response to Axiom Table by Young and Norgate

Illustration by Assa Ariyoshi

Living with Axiom

As a father,
Protective, he gathers his flock,
Providing shelter, without conditions or curfew.
Nurturing character in each of his kind,
He fosters their singular deep-seated beauty.

As a lover,
Entrancing, with subtle stories to share,
Forgiving of upsets, and generous of heart.
Loyal, and handsomely firm to the touch,
He invites his beloved to tarry a while.

As a man,
Dependable, spirited, strong,
Understanding his humble place in the whole.
While truly alive hosting laughter and love,
He stands peacefully still, and happy, alone.

And while Axiom lives,
Memories are etched,
Engrained with a heavy delight.
