The Revelation of Wood

....some folks would say we are known by the company we keep,
i prefer to say that the company i keep is what’s penned on paper,
and that my thoughts work them-selves out as word friends,
until in the end i am gathered in the forest by my friends of wood
…. it might be that after i have some-day slipped the veil,
that ones of few or many might start opening my books of thought,
etchings of imagination’s greatest words that speak of wood dreams,
till some might catch a coup d’oeil of what i mean by wood art
—by flp


I cut this one in the woods 3-4 years ago, in the fall and so the wood has sat and waited….gathering a gain on some integrity of character….

....tested the wood last week and I could tell by the bark, that the wood was//is ready to be de-barked and come in. One de-barking spudder and an old slick that I use in the woods, now it’s time to do some work…. the end of a day, and so the works all done, while I relax with the sounds of the forest. No saws going now, I can listen to more here, in the woods, then some hear in a lifetime….

....walking tall, tall walking….what a pleasure it is to find this one waiting to be-come an-other stepping out…. what shall I do with these and when shall the wood speak of who it shall be…. and white is like a good fresh brew of lapsing tea….

....and so once again here’s one that is be-coming very dear to my eyes, and it’s all-most every day that I will stop a while and stare into this ones soul of wood….asking and waiting for the wood to reveal to me….what there is written within that shall yet be as…..’the revelation of wood’....

Thank you.

’’ smart, work safe, and live, to work the wood....’‘

I initially saw a huge slingshot. I will wait to see you wood art to see what it has become. Thanks Frank.

Frank, after much time studying that block of wood, I see a face in the center with antlers with wings coming from it’s shoulders, now ain’t that weird? Beautiful chunk of wood, maple? Yea like he posted.

The trees of the forests are very beautiful women Of which l’ invisible body under l’ bark is alive. The purest water of the sky waters them, and the wind By drying their hair the crown d’ sunshades. Their face n’ is not charged with the tower of Cyb√®les: L’ shade alone of the flowers on their moving glance Fall down, and, along their arms continuing, Turn green ivies qu’ the rubelles ones empourprent. The trees of the forests are women upright Who the day carry l’ eagle and the night the owl, Then look at them fleeing on the unknown ground. The rapid hope and the dubious dream S’ fly away in turn of their naked shoulder And the prisoner in tears s’ enracine with the destiny. GEORGES DUHAMEL
