Surreal Thursday: Mystery Stone
Dreaming of The Sword and the Lady in the Lake, The Stone lay on its side. Thousands of years ago it was part of a greater body that dreamt of great sheets of ice and huge tusked beasts roaming the chilled landscape. Before that, there were dreams of steamy jungles, warm savannahs and massive creatures , when feathers were born and wings took flight. All this is congealed in The Stone, along with the fiery remains of Stardust, Moonbeams and the drifting currents of expansive oceans. Tomorrow, a long time from yesterday, a child will pick it up and it will skip and dance across the water of a lake to the sound of joyous laughter. Till then, it will dream.
