Stones of Time

As we walk along the river of creation.

We begin to watch the rocks at our feet for those of interest by sight.

And those of which was collected had brought many thoughts to mind.

These rocks of ages are the Stones of Time.

If these Stones of Time  could see and speak, we would hear the story of all the ages.

And as a visual check begins to decipher the stones, many variations come to mind.

For each stone is different beyond compare.

Shape, color and contrast are all there.

Through thousands of years the stones had formed yet in the beginning were they already

For they are neither animals nor plants, yet they exist.

Each one different yet the same in a mysterious way.

And those with holes from dripping rain.

Aggots with much beauty are they.

The earths crust is embedded with such time lines such is a tree.

Yet, many answers still lie in the Stones of Time.

    Mary, there have been many times I've walked along the beach where my father lived and wondered if he had ever touched any of the grains of sand I was walking upon. There is great depth in this awesome, thought-provoking poem. It goes to my favorites. Best wishes, Carolyn
