This one earth we footprint/molten rock
So hot@core we dare not trespass
Staying on the surface/we worship Holy Mountains
Make Pilgrimage to Shrines /Zen Gardens/Rock Temples/Pyramids
Each one sparkles with a different light(We value diamonds more than coal
is it because we value permanence/hence buried within Pyramids?
or is it intrinsic that we adore the very Earth we will all fall into-
whether as ash or bone/there is nowhere else to go..
Even fired into space,rockets still fall with dull gravity
We are intrigued by stones-the lapidary of life
Opals dug from deep thin mines/veins within our earth/we find
Blood diamonds /King Solomon's Mines-legends of stones ,rocks,diamonds
accrued like wealth of aurum in Fort Knox.If rock alone were wealth-
this earth a mine,we all dig-to find?Strip mining/uranium poisoning
Great Green Ant Dreaming disrupted into earthquake and tornado.
Do not blame rock.Sculptors know-beauty is in flow
Rock silent-stone face-speaks only to those who already know..
