ragged rocks
remnants from time

      a little water
   falling from skies
for millions of years

skies see things
      over the ages

   things we would 
not ever wish to see

primeval rock-scapes
      layer upon layer
of rain-carved stone

   remember nothing
they have no memory

      then there's a sky
filled with dark clouds
   and little mercy

      we see those rocks
and do not understand

   whether they have
anything to say to us

we do not speak
      that language

    1. Thank you for the kindnesses arlenecorwin!

      I heard it said that it is common for people to make great art but not know that it is great art. I just try, but don’t know if it is good or bad. So maybe there is hope.
