Being inexhaustible, life and nature are a constant stimulus for a creative mind.

You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.
~Ray Bradbury


Ancient boulders wait,
hopeful
for their Stonehenge
tryouts that will never come
On their coffee-grounds mountain
Colossal trees huddle
like football players
at a game
the cobblestone riverbed stands solitary,
stuck on guard duty once again
I hike up
its tired, lowly surface
swords of sunlight thrust before me,
fiercely glinting across
the lichen-filled shadows,
showing my mere humanity
I realize
I belong in this gray-slate world
where time has no meaning
and old boulders wait,
eternally unchanged
