Dried stretchmarks wrap around sawed-off knots
Straining against pregnant life swelling within
Nature’s outie / where life separated from life
Puckered up smirking at everyone who comes by
Covering scars of knots buried / healing over time
Creating a beauty all its own
enjoyed by all

Today at d’Verse, Mish asked us to write a Quadrille of exactly 44 words using some form or the word knot. I saw these knots on the side of a tree when we were at the park a couple of weeks ago. I thought they were interesting, so I took a couple of photos of them.
