an ephemeral creation

the sky calls the rock

where water moves in streams,
some of us are called to stack rocks upon themselves
to make order, assertion,

a push to hold and reach high,
just where water dutifully follows gravity
and seeks to bring all back to the sea,

these stacks of rocks mirror Buddhists
who create in sand and seem to find rightness
in even the most ephemeral of a creation.
