Patti Masterman

A Sun So Fair

The rocks stored up sun
For so long, and so long;
In their rocky hearts
Since time’s begun.

Tumbled and polished;
So rare, so rare-
They could tell a tale
From when we weren't there.

I'm saving these rocks
Born before earth,
Pieces of mantle
That gave me birth.

There's sun in my bones,
And sun in my hair-
Rock crystals- and beauty-
From a sun, so fair

    We are indeed a mixture of sunlight and minerals. A joyful poem!
    I've got a few rocks collected on holidays myself. (Report) Reply
