History’s Layers

Layered rock

Cracks and rifts

Blackened hearths

Tribes adrift

Weight of time

Overhead

Stories told

But not dead.

Temporarily Forever

Almond bloom AmitaiAsif

Photo: Amitai Asif

 

The tender bloom stays but few days

Yet made of atoms forged

In times

Before eons,

And will remain

As it transforms

To almond, seed, tree, earth, person:

All life’s

Ions.
