It took days to hollow out the soft parts
of the trunk, dig out the tree-flesh and sap,
polish the raw wood so that when he sat,
there would be no splinters. He carved his name
into the side, like a blessing, a declaration
of good fortune, and stowed his forest inside.
i don't know what this is

it may be part of a larger whole

or maybe it is just a small whole thing

I keep coming back to this, trying to find the right words to say, but I'm still speechless.

This is a beautiful poem, truly breathtaking! And the title sounds like a line from the TV show Supernatural:)

Oh gosh, I was hoping no-one would notice... Yeah, I stole the title straight out of Supernatural. It was supposed to be a place-holder but then it just kind of stuck... I think it suits the poem, though. Thank you! :heart:

As part of a whole or a whole itself, I think it is great either way. The imagery and feeling this small poem transfers is beautiful.

It seems like a small whole thing to me. A flawless thing.
