Hewn

HEWN

adj.
1. felled and roughly shaped by hewing: hewn logs.
2. given a rough surface: hewn stone.






















His lips and hands had been hewn
By sandy storms of strewed feelings
By stray splinters of servitude;
His heart, pristine.

I have always loved this word. (I'm saying it aloud to myself.)
