Stones Have Hearts Poem by Yasmin Khan

Stones Have Hearts

Rating: 5.0

Stones too have hearts, they speak
Talk, feel and when carved they bleed
They are treasure troves, books and tomes
They are palaces, pyramids, graves and domes
They are Ozymandias, Abou el Hol(Sphinx) , dieties
In them Time's frozen, they're history,
They're erudite, scholars and visionaries
Man not only lives in flesh, he breathes in alabaster
In marble, in onyx, in travertine too, alive in sculptor
Stones inhale and exhale, are projective, receptive
Healing, soothing, kindle love, dreams and visions
Arn't they strong, outgoing and forceful?
Or calm, inward and peaceful?
Being lifeless induce fertility, growth
Neither taste Life nor Death, yet grace both

A unique write up, as stones are always used to indicate the heartlessness or hardheartedness but you have infused breath and tenderness in stones by your choice words...a different thought, thoughtfully composed! Yasmeen Khan!

very insightful write. stone is one state of nature and stones have a good role in our day to day's life. if there would be no stone how could we compare with heart. keep writing.

Makes me think of the most sacred, beloved and most kissd stone, the Hajre Aswad in Mecca in Kabah. A fabulous stony poem! Kudos.

A very unique thought on the sculptered monuments and other marvels of stone! Yes, within each stone, there is an angel, a Venus or a David veiled! Stones are also palaces, pyramids, graves and domes! Enjoyed this poem with a difference in looking at things! !
