Significant Stones


Stonehenge (photo credit: Wikipedia) 

Were they thrones,
shaped for greater kings;

commandments raised for lesser
souls; tombstones

to honor the past, templates
for tomorrow?

Granite soldiers, standing
at attention, saluting another

Ancient billboards,

Did they stave off giants,
offer altars to gods with no names?

Did they contain secrets etched
for patient wanderers? Perhaps
they were simply a giant Jenga game,
abandoned. Or,

like most creations, were they merely
pleasing to the artist’s eye, casting
just the right glance of slant and
……….to a waiting sky.
