If these Stones could Speak
And if these stones could speak
what wonders would I hear
Sweeping away to horizon's edge
this sea of fractal landscapes
bleeds from the morning mist
These innumerable crevasses
cracked and icy hard
beneath a frigid solstice
call wildly through layers of shadow
and salve my eyes with wonder
Here stand kernals of rock
this sandstone spine of the land
Now laid bare from the sheen of ice
by an isolated and furious storm
born from the crackling East
Oh and how time has passed
uncountable years since birth
beneath the swirling layers
of a warm and shallow sea
The myriad forms of life's creation
that have passed this way
and if these stones could speak
what wonders would I hear

Author's Notes:
A simple Poem created from a few words given to me by my friend Scarlett (She Whispers) always...thank you....Tom
