I found a fossil hiding 
near something overgrown,
a historical handprint etched 
in a slab of ancient stone.

I trace the imprint idly
and marvel at its design-
the grooves coil and curve around,
and then become entwined.

    Very nice and well written, sounds like an ammonite, I've been a fossil and mineral hunter for many years. Congratulations on you placement.

    I enjoyed reading your poetry this morning Katie. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I am going to see if I can write something for a couple contests this weekend. Hope you find the inspiration to do the same. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. Love, Carol
