Wound silky thread, row upon row,
maker’s bark woven // yet fatefully scuffed;
existential shorthand all understand.
There remain no untroubled bits.
If perchance you see none,
know the pulp beneath.
Mycellic intraveni creep up
from roots; we’re nourished
as we return to dust.
Yesterday, older son and I took another walk out along The Highlands, the once nature, then golf course, now returning to nature. The top image is a close-up of the bark of this magnificent birch tree. The second image is of the tree with my son — who is 6’+ tall — standing near it so you can see the scale.
Lillian is today’s host for dVerse’ Quadrille Monday. Lillian says:
So wondering what the required word for today’s Quadrille is? It’s WOUND.
How did you just pronounce the word in your head when you read it?
It can be pronounced in two different ways, each with its own meaning – thus it is indeed a homograph!
Want to make the prompt a bit tougher today? Within your 44 words, instead of just using one pronunciation/meaning of WOUND as one of the 44 words, include the word WOUND twice – as two of the 44 words – using both of the meanings/pronunciations and thus including the homographic pair.
