Drip by Drip

Drip by drip the crystals grow,

Below the earth where no one goes

Nature’s Palace slowly grows.

A 100 thousand years or more,
Water drips upon cave floor,
Stalactite from tiny straw,
Popcorn, Coral, Shawl and more.

Limestone formed in ages past,
Bodies of molluscs, fish so fast,
Settled on ocean floor at last,
400 million years gone past,

Just like crystal, humans grow,
Weathered by the things we know,
Layers pile and years they go,
But crystal beauty lurks below.
