Heart of Stone

A heart of stone
Found by
Muddy clay

Embedding
Entwining
Infusing
Wrapping itself around the heart

Becoming one
Cementing together
Softening
Becoming stronger

No longer two-dimensional
Now with layers and texture

Folding over
Permeating
Mixing
Sand and clay and mud and stone

Stone
Stone softening
Stone melting
(How can this be?)

Morphing
Changing
Something new
Something whole
Something resting

Scared? Less so
Liberated
Released
At peace
Soon
