good neighbours make – after Frost

such art in the casual balance
the gritstone     considered     hefted
then placed     interlocked just so
delicate weighty     it's only the start
firm weft-weave     of ragged edges

a geometry from geology

igneous speaks to granite to blue john
remnants unburdened from glaciers
serve us     serve the landscape
march over hills     skirt valleys     declare
this is mine     stay in     I will protect
