Jeweled studs
break through
a colormelting sky
fast-forwarded sawteeth
rend
time bends
catches
in charred meshing. 
String harmonics purr
trilling
a drowsy syncopation
a confluence
of conflicting emotions
sinuously coil
skin deep
snap tight
crossroads' weathered wrinkles. 
Flagstones' web
just under foot
print
lithophonic stories
write
a sacred text
moves
a landscape
splits from the core
Nature's sounding board.
