Controversy and Knots

....i love the controversy that comes from working the wood,
i love the controversy of knotted knotty knots,
picking up pen and paper i stir some words that cut like wood,
soon i realize that words and wood and knots are all what it’s about

....controversy ‘just is’ the sweet smelling aroma that describes my knots,
and so i throw out some descriptive words by telling tales of knots,
i offer this advice that says it all about my story dreams of knots,
how could anyone call a knot just a knot when there are so many

—-’knotsthat are found in wood—-:
....Spiked Knots....;
....Oval Knots....;
....Round Knots....;
....Intergrown Knots—-Red Knots....;
....Encased Knots—-Black Knots....;
....Decayed Knots....;
....Knot Hole....;
....Warty Knots....;
....Tight Knots—-Intergrown Knots....;
....Loose Knots—-Encased Knots....;
....Pin Knots....;
....Checked Knots....;

....ah yes i love my knots,
i love the working of all my wood,
i love the sculptures that come from these words,
i am the wordy wood knot of all that i am

Thank you.

It is so good to once again read your words. As always, they paint beautiful pictures.
