Made of Stone

      drag my feet;
it won't slow down.

   look for stone dragons
no gorgons go this way.

a mystery is played.

      the third act is 
the same

   something is made
of sand, made of stone.

   i saw the deer,
      resting in the shade,
sheltering from the sun.

again i saw her,
      eating apples
      from the tree.

who is she then?

      an antelope,
gliding over a fence
   almost like
it wasn't there.

   the apple smells
different when ripe.

      she knows when 
it is ready to be eaten,

and seldom if ever
      gets it wrong.

   i watch in wonder;
she's so beautiful.

    1. Thank you singlikewildflowers!

      These rocks are naturally weathered sandstone, from an island on the west coast of North America.

      They give me an idea, that I might make some sculptures from concrete, with similar shapes.

      When I first saw them, I thought that they were some kind of mushrooms.


      1. Your sculpture idea sounds interesting. You should definitely do it!
        These weathered sandstones do look like mushrooms; rocks are fascinating in their shapes and textures. My kids and I have an ongoing rock collection that we enjoy looking up and then adding more to our collection. lol.
