a stone is a stone

rocks and statues. sad or unkind in feature. dropped or placed purposely. a stray twig laying alongside the road. small pebbles kicked by children on their way to the beach. hard and rough, they fall to bits when smashed. in darkness they loom and change the landscape into shadows of frightening creatures of the night. carved into beautiful images, skipped across a local shimmering lake, dropped from bridges or out of windows. gathered together at gravesides to mourn the deceased. rolled or carted to large mounds creating beautiful formations. standing stones with imagery. tales of long ago. tall tales or tall stones. wilderness and quiet.
