Rocks

Rocks______
Immobile;
Against seasons and reasons;
Firm
Against rivers and flowers;
Loveless and lifeless;
Against stars and grasses;
Ever-frozen
With a wintry heart.

In summer and spring
In the wind and the rain
they are the same.
'Nothing ever changes,
Nothing ever grows.'
They sing.

Flowers beam and fall to the floor.
Rivers giggle and take to their course.

Hard and fast
The rocks stand
Undying,
Unliving .
