Poetry: “Mossy rock”

This is borderline navel gazing type philosophy, but what the heck.


Mossy rock


Moss strewn rock

Leisurely spread

Outside the door

Of a long apartment building

An old survivor

Once living in the woods

Then with mankind’s ceaseless spread

Found himself without neighbors

Near all trees felled

Replaced by brick and mortar

Dwellings of man

Surrounding him

Yet there is no sadness here

On him men have rested

On him kids have played

Still he hears the birds sing

The rain makes his moss grow

He will be here still

After we all are gone

Moss strewn rock

With his long visage

Eternal and profound
