Loved – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Polish – VJs Weekly Challenge








The rugged sandstone fell in chunks
fragmenting in the river below
a millennia past,
and though nothing happened for a time,
or so it seemed,
the stone surrendered to the water
who loved the stone
to an external beauty
that belied its inner strength.

  1. Beautiful, Paul, both as an explanation of how rocks gain their polish, but also as a metaphor.
