Rolling stone

Rolling stone (Photo credit: Paulo Etxeberria)

Is a force that keeps going.

It perpetuates itself, growing,

And never slowing.


Once it does,

Time stands still,

Like a stone rolled atop a hill.


It’s a strange feeling

That’ll have you reeling.


Once the momentum stops

The abstractions are tossed

And the words are lost.


How can lost inertia be gained

Amidst all the silence, plain?


All it takes is a push,

A gentle breeze whistling, “whoosh”,


To push the boulder off the ledge

And break the glass ceiling with a sledge…


So the momentum will return

The creative force for which I yearn.
