Rattlesnake Stones- A Poem by Matt Howes

Rattlesnake Stones

You drew a form with stones
of a Rattlesnake-
Enclosing and Meandering
around a great Rock.
Sun reflecting quartz,
Granite eyes like jewels
Over-looking the domain
Of the valley Below.
Placed like a sentient Watcher
Out of Time Yet in Place.
Skies Open, Cracked ledge Moans
The rattlesnake dashes---
perches upon a Stone
High in the hills.

(poem by Matt Howes).
