Creativity Boot Camp Day 4 - Heavy Metal

It was just a rock, but it spoke.

Not in words so much as a quickening in the heart and a leaping of the soul.

It was a space rock.

A meteorite.

A dense magnetized heavy-metal-laden stone.

It spoke of new beginnings and cosmic dust.

It spoke of stars and songs blown on secret winds of time and space.

It spoke of WORD spoken in formless voids.

It spoke of hidden worlds tucked in safe pockets of oxygen and faith.

It spoke of the past and the future caught in the speed of light.

It spoke of infinite possibilities; of ever expanding horizons.

In its heft, the mysteries of the universe dwelt on our coffee table.

Whispering secrets in the dark.

It was just a rock, but it spoke.

Beauty.

Freedom.

Creation.

Peace.

In its silent speaking I caught lingering notes of heavenly song.

A magnetized rock that attracted more than metal.

Oh LIz, I love how beautiful this is. Growing up with a Sci-Fi obsessed father I am not partial to sci-fi or anything close and I would never use the word beautiful but this? It's beautiful, and I love it!
