Poem: "Carved in Stone"
This poem came out of the November 3, 2009 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from tonithegreat and sponsored out of general donations thanks to the poll. Petroglyphs appear around the world and have many different meanings and purposes.

Carved in Stone

People spend hours
pecking out petroglyphs in the desert,
leaving them on the high red rocks
as signposts saying,
“This way to water!” and
“This way to enlightenment.”

Grumbling, the wind
comes with a fistful of sand
to erase them.

Short but evocative. I like it! :-)

I like all your work, but I like this one especially.

It's your very own electroglyph.
