    Paluxy Riverbed

    Dinosaurs waiting for stone to erode,
    Their skeletons covered, uncovered again;
    Iron that's forgotten the blood where it flowed
    And phosphorous leached from a primitive brain;

    Delicate sabers of soft-stepping cats,
    Enshrouded in shimmering oceans of sand;
    Multiple layers of sediment that's
    Concealing the bones of the earliest man.

    Visible traces of numerous beasts;
    The sum of Earth's creatures forever enshrined;
    Signs of their passing don't slow in the least,
    The rivers and runnels of ongoing time.

    I wrote this about a place in Texas where there are many fossils.
    Comments apreciated,
