Stone, worn down 

By water running over it...

Smooth and polished long ago... 

The droplets so many, a complex number, 

Turned the edges to glass, 

Each a benchmark of time,  

Is weighed in my hand and 

Released

In a flash of light,

Arcing over the river's brow,

Sinking,

And tumbling, 

A prisoner again 

Of water.
