POEM: Hill Temple

Those old, stone boulders —

rough, cold, and lonely.

Topped with temples older

than the one and only —

that cave carved in a hill,

chiseled in ancient rock

by feat of iron will —

precise as key-in-lock.

How long will it last

for pilgrims to walk

into the distant past,

’til it erodes like chalk?
