Beautiful stones

“Is a mountain only a huge stone? Is a planet an enormous mountain?”

Stanisław Lem, Solaris

A solid mass

Perfected by the tides

 

Infused with salt

And a solar-gold blush

 

Or paled

To a translucent gem

 

Perching on the sandy cushion

The stone beholds the waves

 

High and low

Lives come and go

 

The stone remains

Proud and patient

 

Every ticking second

Elevating its composure

 

A solitaire army

Bonding the land and water

 

Dwelling the worlds

Of men and mermaids

 

Unimaginably profound

Are stones more beautiful than humans?

  1. For some reason, I feel compelled to comment on your writing. I think it’s like an “inspired” thing… I’m challenged by your art. You can always just delete me if I get annoying, right? I don’t know if stones are MORE beautiful than humans…but they are beautiful, especially in your shot.
