Cracks in a Facade

As happens in many natural places, this stony mass presents a facade of barren sterility.  Gripped by Earth’s gravity, the rock seems weighted down by its own mass.  Then we look more closely.

Morose Monolith
|Sullen mass of stone,
|hosting only black lichen?
|Seeds and spores found cracks.

    1. So glad U like them.  The photos were scanned from ancient Ektachrome slides and needed substantial editing.  The rise of digital cameras and editing is one of the ways the world has gotten better over recent decades.  Wish there were more.
