Hilltop to Hilltop

looking across a timescape
we see into a distant past

where great lumbering
creatures walked a beach


after they died (huge
piles of rotting meat)

bones were revealed
(sand washed in)
covered deep for eons

minerals leached in
replacing calcium
(bones became stone)

covering sand became stone 
(long millions of years)
and buried deep the bones

volcanoes erupted
spewing ash which became
thick silent layers

ice ages came and went
continents drifted while
land rose and subsided


looking across a timescape
we see into a distant past
