The man of stone.

Shadows draw long from the limbs of trees
as the sun sinks softly down low.
Night closes in, and he shivers from the cold.
One thing is certain -- that he never chose
this path for himself. For he
never dreamed to be
forever this man of stone.


And so the mountain stands alone.
His strength, however evident --
reminds him -- as he stands in reverence
that this place is not his home.
