A New Metre: Poetry Archive

“What thou seest, write in a book, and send it . . .” —Revelation 1:11

Stonelife

“Life,” they say,
but what is life?

Is life a moving,
and if so, what is a tree?

Perhaps life is merely needing something:
then is a stone alive?

A stone, I think,
has needs.
It just needs so little,
and can wait so long
to get it.
