Gem Stones

Posted Aug 11 2008 12:30am
I'll be updating recovery progress in a few days, everything is a bit forwards and backwards at the moment but I'm being inspired by the Olympics and writing when I can. Here's a poem I'm working on at the moment :-)
Gem Stones

When I was five the shiny bright stone
Sparkled in my eye;
Polished and smooth and light to my palm.

I scavenged the ground,
Shops on holiday,
Picking rocks off mountainsides;

Learning foreign names,
The geology of the Earth with
Spitting volcanoes and quakes

To shake up the land.
Spiky crystals expose,
Rough ridges smoothed by tools,

The nature of weather eroding, pulsing
As I listened and found
Tunes of the Earth’s inner core.
