sediment

we settle
like so much sediment
thinking only of how we might look years hence
layer upon layer weighing us down first by our feet
slowly building to our waist
ad rising above our shoulders

only then was there that fear
that anxiety
all the questions about
“Was it all enough?”
“What did I miss?”

until quietly we were part of the stone
and it was like we’d never really been there at all
