Travel - Olive Wood Workshop

Hand tools

A focused lamp

A small lathe to turn wood

Half-done projects

Oh olive tree!

What a boon you are!

Olives

Rest for birds

Green oil

Roots that hold the hillside.

Dense wood

With beautiful grain

That speaks

To the craftsman’s hands.

He comes

He holds the heavy wood

and he works it.

Spoons

Bowls

Platters

All come from his tools

And his hands

Here in this workshop.
