Stone Mason

Life is a lapping of stones
into homes. Each day a stone
wall. Each moment housing
a stone among stones.

They sculpted your
enviable torso, a rare gift,
seeing the work of stones,
recognizing them as author,

yet time makes mortar stronger
than stoneyour living
is cemented between
the building of stout houses.

Mother, your cornerstone,
chiseled your children into
cherubim and placed them atop
the five-cornered home,

in which your spirit fires
the heartha single solid
centered stone, among stones
lapping into a home.
