The Stones We Make

March 8, 2013

Trefextra weekend challenge 58: stone: 33 words

The players aggregate with sealing wax

Creating a pliable stone with tenuous connectivity

At best.

Heated words destroy the network

Carved with questionable materials

Humans need be more careful

Lest fates fly off.

    “”Lest fates fly off” …love that line.

    That rock is called a “conglomerate” a sedimentary rock, as opposed to its volcanic cousin the “agglomerate” – it’s cool and rare – as is your piece πŸ™‚

      Yes, conglomerates are some of my favorite rocks. I’m surprised to hear they are rare. Here where I am, I’ve seen them often. I had not heard of agglomerate. Thank you.

    Lots of good lines in these 33 words. “Heated words destroyed the network” and “Lest fates fly off” are great. Well done. πŸ™‚
