Gerard, This haiku seems to describe the photo of a contest a while back, (I think titled "Familiarity Unknown"). "Etched from dinosaur spine" is such an interesting and unique view of the stone formation, which did actually resemble the vertebrae of a spine!!! I love this interpretation!

Oh, this was pretty good,but it looks like you did not fare any better than me in the contest? Say, you are right about my ghazal, but sadly, I can not change my "you" to "you're" because the rhyme pattern of a ghazal is in the words coming before each final line that says "an angel" So i used words like view, pursue, and you, I can't say 'you're" because it would not rhyme with the oo sound, dang it!! LUv,andrea

I got to say a fossil of an idea, even in our passage of life we always find what was left behind..One thing is for sure the stars will be and never end. Sorry if my comment is not related to your poem at all. p.d.
