Petrified Waves

Sunday, September 05, 2010

Oh God! What kind of petrification shock
is this?!
Since how is stone wavy like water, and yet frozen in it's motion?

Oh pillar of salt that thou shouldst become like this!

There are no words to describe this strange sight.

From whence did this hellish land come?

Even a field plowed under does not look this perturbed, crumpled
and frozen motionless.
Arrested from life.

Nothing but this to the everlasting horizon.

What significance but death?
