To Make the Rocks Shine

To Make the Rocks Shine

A Poem by Alli

Beauty can be huge and blinding- like a setting sun- or it can be in the little things.

Speckles of rock shine,
On the boulder standing proudly,
Above the tree that sway gently-
In accordance to its brethren-
On the mountain which towers,
But only one of the many peaks
That soar through the clouds,
Stretching miles across the sky- 
Now blazing brilliant gold-
As the sun sinks
Saying goodbye to this land
And hello to the next.
All that beauty,
All that power,
Just to make the speckles of rock shine.
