This Igneous Life

 The hard time spent chained to stone
taught me patience.

Through years of lonely communion
with stone I learned listening.

When stone finally weathered and broke
I knelt down on its bones and wept.

  1. Wow, haunting, but so real...
    The harsh reality of trying to deal with virtues, that don't come easy to us.
    Great use of the prompt!

  2. I identify with hardship and suffering and can sense the suffering trials turning to grace. I see this as a very beautiful piece. I also would like to thank you for visiting my blog. Please, have a lovely weekend.

  3. This is absolutely magnificent. So wonderful.

  4. This is...really good.
