  1. Wonderful poem Paul! I love your personification of dreaming-watcher stones!

    Made me think of Luke 19:39-44, which mentions personification of dreaming-watcher stones twice, and was a connected play on words, often overlooked by modern readers as modern Bible translators ruin what should be obvious literary connections with jarring and unnecessary summary headings that were not in the original text:

    “And some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.”

    And when he drew near and saw the city, he wept over it, saying, “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For the days will come upon you, when your enemies will set up a barricade around you and surround you and hem you in on every side and tear you down to the ground, you and your children within you. And they will not leave one stone upon another in you, because you did not know the time of your visitation.”
