Granite is great. It’s hard, weathers through countless winters of freezing and thawing. It does break down, eventually but slowly. Lines laying across the rocky surface tells us when the next break will occur. The individual shapes and sizes of the rocks are like fluffy clouds, they remind us of something, maybe a snake sneaking through the water, a seal sunning on the beach in the cold north. One looks like it would make a perfect seat. I could sit here watch the dragonflies fizz by, the minnows erratic meandering the the pools of water the myriad of colors in the trees that’s changing into fall.
