Don’t be Bored Rock

don’t be bored rock 

once you were orange fire 

thundering down some 

mountain slope or 

hurtling silver sleek 

through deep sky 


maybe you were thrown up 

sputtering red by 

an ancient fuming volcano or 

born with the planet in a 

starless galactic bang 


to be carved sharp by ice 

rounded by raging wind 


but whichever it was 

being still now is good 

after all 


you have so much to remember
