Written In Stone

Written In Stone

I do not write

my Words in stone

though they may be

by someone else,

not me.

Once my Words

were painted, chiseled,

carved, inscribed

in clay and stone

to speak to the Ages

for ancient versions

of me.

Once my Words

were penned and inked,

inked and metal-printed

onto treed pages

then scattered by winds

and breezes

like dead leaves

for another version

of me.

Now I search within

for Words Heart-Mined,

exploring Heart and Mind

that I might find

Words of worth

to share in Poetry

but would not wish them

written in stone

that they be free

to change and grow

with me.
