This Pebble

This Pebble;

Pure while at heart but

a tinge of brown outside.

Smooth, but for a few cracks

through which the blankness

gives way to the crystalline insides.

Cold at first, but as it’s held,

grows warm to return the warmth

its given.

So soft, yet so strong.

Searching for balance in all its rolls.

Its real; but magically intangible

And incompletely perceived.
