Significant Stones

Stonehenge (photo credit: Wikipedia) 


..
Were they thrones,
shaped for greater kings;

tablets,
commandments raised for lesser
souls; tombstones

to honor the past, templates
for tomorrow?

Granite soldiers, standing
at attention, saluting another
……………………………sunrise?

Ancient billboards,
pre-
Burma
-Shave?

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
…….shadow
……….to a waiting sky.
