Knotwork

Look closely and can you see?

Something only a master can create.

An infinite design.

No beginning, no end, always moving.

Look closely and can you see?

Something that is woven together.

A personal symbol.

Love and eternity – always together.

Looking closely you won’t really see.

Something made piercing the skin.

An inkling of permanence.

Celtic heritage always there.

Posting for With Real Toads Celtic Challenge, took the free form route to celebrate my new tattoo!

    That’s amazing, Shanyn. The perfect tattoo on which to base your response to the Celtic-Irish theme.

      You are VERY welcome! It took a while to decide on it, but after she was done I totally loved my new tattoo! Glad you enjoyed the poem.

      Thanks Gemma. It is also the name of the studio that did my tattoo, that way I won’t forget! 🙂 And it worked well with the poem too…a nice fit overall. Thanks for coming by.

    Terrific ink, Shanyn… and I think your poem speaks to the perfection of the human soul, spirit, too. Lovely!

    Congrats Shanyns! It takes some courage to have one done. The design is perfect. A symbol of love and eternity that revolves but remains static. Incidentally a goal scorer in Euro 2012 ( had one also at his wrist) quickly kissed it upon scoring. Obviously it’s a sign of appreciation or thankfulness. Physically kissing it must have boosted his confidence further! Great verse!
