Another post it note poetry entry 2014. There's a partial rhyme that's crept in and I am not sure if I should have gone with beneath or neath. I chose the latter to fit a 12 syllable restriction. Could easily have been:
work of art these termite trails under bark - a page inscribed.
I also was trying to introduce layers of meaning ie the trails are a work of art and they are like inscriptions or carvings on a page and/or both an inscribed page and a termite eaten log can be works of art.
