Bold Boulders

Bold Boulders


 Bold Boulders

Bold boulders

Assert themselves

On the landscapes,

And those looking on

Like us.

Persistently patient,

Their presence poses

Within deep geological time.
We, by contrast,

Under duress

Of fleeting trials and tribulations,

Teeter and topple.

Whereas, those boulders season

Searing sun,

Whipping winds,

Sheets of snow,

Films of frost, and

Remain, among

Downpours of rain.
Bold boulders you have sung your song,

Passing through the epochs long.

Do stand with us, that we may be strong,

When transient trifles to us do throng.
