forever and final
cruel through the ages
yet you shelter the spores of life
the tiny seedling rests there
like the outlaw of old
when he hid in the hollows.

so immovable
your time is not our time
came from the caldron
of fire
to the doggedness
of that which is.

Generations come and go
try to push you around
but one by one
they disappear
in lava
that once ran
in fire
and then set
in eternity.
