A Rock Sang to Me

Green as in a faded family dress,

smoothed out by the passage of time.

A spot on one side rises suddenly,

like a face lifting from the waters.

Found on the slope of a starry walk,

it glowed with life in the snow

and was found by a wandering monk

making a trip to Heaven's gates.

It now sits, alone and resting,

on the shrine of said monk,

taking sunlight and reflecting back

the colors beheld in our minds.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I was inspired once last semester to take a slow walk and really enjoy myself and look at everything while walking up to the observatory at the college for a class, which I didn't get to do much.  I found the rock on the "Planetary Walkway".  It now sits on my dresser, pretty as the day I found it.
