Shaken and Fallen

broken stones 
and columns
on a stone floor

scattered by quakes
so many years ago


sunshine afternoon
chilly evening
once we are home
and well rested

sometimes we look
for nonexistent problems

or miss out on things
we later regret missing


limestone blocks
were stacked 
and carved to make
amazing columns

pinned together
it was thought

they were too strong
to break and fall
stone is so hard
and strong

men might think so
