layer upon layer

of rock, wood, and us


the siltstone rocks on and around the trail
look like phyllo dough,
cut and broken logs reveal
where each year added its memories,

how much are we like that, 
a composite that is still one?

and what can we learn if we study
the layer upon layer within us?
