Yes or Knot

-Linda Lee Lyberg

Let yes be knot

Unraveling

Ripping through negative strands

 

And knot the assembling

Of boulders slipping

Through my hands.

  1. Unraveling / ripping / assembling / slipping… The contrasts and word usage are knot to be overlooked here! This is as intricate as a scout’s knot with layers of meaning slipped throughout.

  2. I really like what you’ve done with the prompt here. So many times, the no, the not, is like a knot, unraveling. As someone else said, multiple meanings here….that negative person, that negative, pessimistic one, tied up in knots indeed.
