And I Am

And I am.
Carbon and quartz and heavy matter,
Onyx and agate.
Always alone,
Stoically stone.

Once ground down and down
Into the glowing fire beyond the sound.
And then again out and around
the green and growing ground
Where I was found.

I am open and eternal,
I am closed and of this instant.
And I breathe,
Once every cycle,
Twice every heartbeat.

Into the ether,
Out into the bone.
Always alone,
Stoically stone.
