Impressive

Do you know what impresses me about pebbles?

They endure. Always.

I mean, pick your punishment: they’ve beaten it.

Volcanoes, Earthquakes, Crushed for Millennia,

Slammed out of Cliffs,

Storms, Waves. Dogs.

 

Battered beyond belief. Yet…

All the more beautiful for their bludgeoning.

Unbroken.

Never. Ever. Shattered.

As are all impressive people.
