The Erratic Boulder by Maureen Kingston

uprooted
by force

rode the icy
wave

of the
Laurentide

to a valley

eons from
its home.

A gray
outcrop

cast alone

a geologic
poet

among
the desert’s

smiling
sandstone.

I like the line breaks, they work very well indeed. The pauses between the lines emphasise the ideas of loneliness and timelessness, the spaces between the outcrop, the sandstone.
