Yield, Cold Rock, Yield

Abe V Rotor

Craggy Sea, painting in acrylic by AVRotor 2002


Yield, cold rock, yield
to the hunting protolife and sun
that shall carpet your shoulders
before I, too, shall come.

Or exfoliate into dusts
and ride on the wind,
whistling the requiem of time
on endless, lifeless sand.

Yield, cold rock, yield
to a thousand raging waves
until you topple from shore
into the hadal deep unknown.

Yield to the lichen and the vine,
the way to the bread and wine,
for you are the rock of life
of symbiosis divine.


Living with Nature, AVRotor
