River Stones

1-DSCN6757

“River stones”?

such a quaint picture for such profound beings

it really falls short to help us to “get” what they’re about

bubbling up from the earths hot depths,

they’ve seen it all, nothing we do here on the surface phases them

silently, slowly, they change,

too slow for the human gaze

they were here for the first crawly bug,

and after we are done parading around the world,

they will be there for the next

So the next time you pass some old stones, think twice and pay some respect.
