Inspired by Charles Simic’s poem “Stone”

I want to go inside you,

Where I’d see dolphins and

Hear a whispering sound

Let someone else become

A rock or a mountain

I’m happy to be an ocean like you.

Inside you are colorful

Clownfish and jellyfish

Blue waves crashing

Deep down you are dark

And cold like taiga

I wonder how you feel

And what secrets you hide
