Petrified Wood



Going backwards into war

never succeeding

cavemen we soar

obviously receding.

An embarrassment

on a massive scale

this ageless harassment

our brilliance doth pale.

Fighting over belief

killing for a spot of land

never a moments relief

wasted nails in a hand.

Human stupidity still stood

like trees frozen in time

much as petrified wood

ignorance frozen in mind.



(Going to the University of Washington this morning, to have two professors look at my Petrified Wood collection. Found eight pieces several years ago, beautiful large samples. Possibly going to display it, hopefully they will be able to determine the type of wood and age. Then I may donate it, or have it displayed in the Museum!! So excited!)
