Split Stone 2 - Poem by Charles Garcia

Driving through the gorge the split stone
Again I see.

And I wondered what it is to go back in time,
And just what it all means.

Reminding me of creation when this rock was
Perhaps, a grain of sand lying on the bottom
Of a sea.

If I had eyes to see, and mind to know,
That this grain of sand would be,
As in my hand a single grain I hold.

Will man ever truly understand?
Life’s Mystery?
