gray with hoarfrost

bearded rocks cast

a somnolent gaze

across rivers of time

tuck their chins into

worn granite collars

staving off winds of

December to coolly

consider the hours

that make up their

motionless eons spent

watching the random

parade of evolving

events tandem suns

whose revolving through

risings and settings

deride the millennial

stasis of stones so for

now they will quietly

contemplate sleep for

a season and conjure

perhaps during igneous

dreams some ingenious

new means to facilitate

motion when spring

warms and wakens

their faces if even their

movement comes

only one fractionate

inch at a time such is

hope as it lives down

and deep in the least

of inanimate things
