ROCK MINERAL ELEMENT

Separate a rock into its component minerals, separate those minerals into elements, and you have the stuff of geology. Reorganize the elements into neat stacks to get the crystal structure of minerals. Sink these minerals into the fiery depths of Earth, spew them again to the surface, recombine them, erode, press, bury, melt, solidify, and thrust them upwards again by the slow and  ponderous force of nature, and there you have rock. The road by my home is topped with bits of gravel blown from rock that was, not so long ago, a nearby mountain. A piece catches my eye… dark as coal, but when I wipe off the dirt it shines with the light of a million stars, from whence, no doubt, it came.  ~K
