The Static Ritual

So continuing with some of my older poetry, I thought I’d put this one up as it’s a nice piece. Loads of my old poetry won’t be put up here as it doesn’t meet my ‘cut’ now, but I think this one stands up.

 

The Static Ritual.

Stones stand,

All around the world.

Undaunted by time.

Oblivious to decay.

Ancient markers.

Pointing out the truth.

Pointing out our freedom.

                      *

Stones stand,

Patient sentinels on Earth.

Aligned with the stars.

Noble points of contact.

A call from our past.

Like a gauntlet thrown.

Shouting out the challenge.

Shouting for the search.

                      *

Stones stand,

A testament to will.

The power of men.

A symbol of unity.

Pinnacle of wisdom.

Tombstones of ignorance.

Daring us to rise.

Daring us to strive.
