What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters

compared to what lies within us.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ode to a Rock

The boulder rose in the forest

Its broad side dappled by sun, composites,

And lichen growing in its folds.

Deposited by glaciers or fallen from a mother ledge

Life passed its stoic watch.

Softened by weathering

Its earth connection hidden and smoothed.

It reaches to the sky

Standing tall among the trees.
