Magpie Tales 142: Face Of Stone

face of stone 

none may claim the stone

of crevassed history; of 

fire and ice, sun and moonscape.

stone holds all memory, 

conjures up igneous lust 

for mounds of androgyny 

on an untouched virgin grail.

  1. That is quite a face. Also, I like your phrase
    igneous lust' which I first misread and 'ingenious' lol.

  2. Wow! I really liked " stone holds all memory"
    great poem, it's hunting and very pretty.
