Monolithic - Poem by Jean Renwick

The sand dunes of tomorrow –
Though they shift constantly with the wind –
Are no more forgiving than your diamond eyes.

The stone cliffs of yesterday –
Though they’re slowly worn down by the tide –
Are no more forgiving than your petrified heart.

The earthy faith of today –
Though it may be a consuming fire –
Is no more compelled to quicken than my cindered soul.
