Nature’s True Gold

Our lives birthed from fire and ash

Chilled molten quartz rock left exposed

Eroded by providential trials and tribulations

Washing away the ash // the insignificant

Leaving us acne pocked and worn

Our igneous core shining in the sun

revealing the gold embedded within us

Today is Quadrille Monday at d’Verse; and De Jackson asked us to write a Quadrille (exactly 44 words) using the word stone!  I took these photos on Saturday when we were at our local park, not knowing when I would use them. This seemed to be the perfect time.
