Listen to this aloud here.

sometimes we move like glaciers.

slow sliding continental shift
one particle at a time--
our vantage point unchanged for years
and years will pass with more years behind
and we will remain deceptively still

we carry things with us,
pebbles and twigs we rest on
for years and years--

but we can cast back
explore the ages we contain,
kept safe inside ourselves.
each grain of sand held close
whispering of ages long since returned to dust--
ages we have seen grow and die
ages we carry
and preserve.

we move like glaciers
quiet and assured
and years will pass with more years behind
but when time has grown tired,
we will remain.

we will have tales to tell.
For Nick.

Could it be? Decent writing?

I'll read this out loud later. I do quite like it. Critique, as always, is welcome.

For certain kinds of minds and souls, this sounds very much like the perfect pinnacle of a relationship and so I wonder at the love that there is an that would grow. This goes beyond beautiful & sweet... but you should watch out, I get the feeling that that voice of yours could melt all the glaciers in all the worlds given time and want.
:blush: Thank you so much. :heart:

;D I suspect that you're well aware of that last fact, but it's fun to say all the same. You're very much welcome, you wonderfully warm, seductive and exquisite miss :bow:
Suffice it to say it's not the first time I've heard it, but it never ceases to surprise me all the same. :blush:

You're sweet. :heart:

I thought so! And really? :giggle: Well that I find surprising! You speak with such a soft deliberateness, your voice seems like such a finely tuned tool (even when you're giggling) and it is just so gorgeous. Sunshine and warm honey, to say the least.

:blushes: Just honest, I swear!

I know! I said the same thing when I heard your voice! :faint:
