THE STONE


HEART OF WHIRLING LAVA & MELTING ROCK

VEINS OF JUICY GEMS & RARE ORE

BONES EXPOSED TO THE COOLING AIR

IN LAYERS, IN BOULDERS, IN TECTONIC FIGHTS

HIDDEN CAVES & MOUNTAIN HEIGHTS

DOWN THE STREAMS & UP THE WELL


I WAS THE SHELTER OF GAMES OF FIRE 

& THE ALTER OF RITUAL CHOIR

I WAS THE COLUMN FOR STEADY WEEPS

& THE BENCH FOR SUNNY HIPS

MOVING IN ETHER FOR A MOMENT THAT IS FOREVER

FEEDING PEACE AND STRENGTH TO MY LOVERS WHEREVER
