Even the hardest of substances can’t stand up to time.

English: Mountainside, Slievenaglogh Mountains...Breaking Stone

Majestic icon
Tortuous time wreaks havoc
Mountainside crumbles

This poem was written for Haiku Heights prompt #252. My take on the “stone” theme was to acknowledge it’s might, but to recognize that not even stone can stand up to time.
