UPDATE: Found this in my draft folder. Hate when stuff doesn’t post….

Going mobile again.

Wednesday, July 11th prompt is “circle of wood”.

My inspiration piece is the asian-inspired display shelves but I have always been drawn to wood shaped in a ring.

Last December, an artist friend of mine created 50 rings and a display case as his submission to the annual Something Red Art Walk; very meticulous precise work and they were stunning!

I am now the “proud owner” of 20 log rounds (sadly, two trees had to come down) and have been prowling Pinterest for what to do with them – other than turn them into firewood. Found some cool ideas that display and play with the roundness of the wood trunks …

Like one that turns them into path lamps. Very cool … and leaves my mind to muse interesting paths. There is a quote ” A wound is where the light enters” – what if wounds are where the light escapes? Or the trees souls leak from? What if it is the portal to another dimension? What if?

There was that X-Files episode where cutting down trees unleashed a swarm of phosphorescent mites.

Than there is barrels, woodfashioned into circles and used to age all kinds of yummy alcohol. Or transport water. Fairy rings of trees where picked dance and work magic …

I could go on all day …

What does “circle of wood” inspire for you?

I am hoping to attempt another troubleshooting sesh with my Post, see if I can revive her. And FINISH backing up files when I do. Looks like that will be a daily thing now until I can take her to a PC doc.

Have a great day poeming!
