A photograph to inspire poetry: Heart of stone

heart of stone

Above is a photograph of a stone in the shape of a heart.  It can inspire poetry.  Here is a poem inspired by it:

your heart of stone,
will not hear the tone,
of pleading words,
and imploring sounds

Poem series: The Sun: Philosophical Parallel

A star,
with light,
and heat,
and energy,
and enormity,
seen at sunrise,
and sunset,
but not directly,
during the day.

A certain philosophic moment,
in the contemplation,
of not seeing,
something with its importance,
and constancy,

a certain parallel,
is thought of,
of a heart,
beating inside.
