Grains bonded together pressed into cliff walls
Adhesive sandstone faces feeling abrasive timeframes
Wind aged cracked crevasses weather season’s squalls,
Million year old vigil bearing the solitary survival game.
Contrasts of bleaching hot sun and chilling cold nights
Torrents of reigning rain then periods of long droughts
Frosty winter’s sleet bite springs to suntan summer’s heat lotion
Majestic morning sunrise vistas fade into serene pastel sunsets.
