Stones by John Murray

Stones

Basalt

grand hexagons 

make a geometry of six, 

Fingal astray


Chalk & Flint

dried blood

as black as lacquer, 

the geisha’s face


Conglomerate

yesterday’s porridge

gone hard in the drawer,

an empty house


Lewisian Gneiss

birth lines winding

in an endless galaxy,

the old man’s face


Limestone

pavements

dissolve in the rain, 

those empty questions


Mica

white crystals

encrypted in granite,

heart broken


Sand

quickly through time

even as glass,

window on God


Sandstone

infinite floor plans

forgotten,

many beds unmade


Schist

silver half seen,

half grasped in the streambed,

that secret wish


Slate

split leaves

paper the rafters,

pages turn


— John Murray

“Within the ‘stony limits’ of haiku form, texts try to contextualise rock types in ten spontaneous responses to aspects of culture. Often this is attempted through references to time, geological or human. Marks made by absent form is a prevailing theme. The puff of breath, an attribute of haikus, as a vehicle for materiality, is ironic.”

— John Murray
