[writing] How much is that fossil in the window?

IMG_1140.JPG

I have a fossil
on my bathroom windowsill
of a gathering of clams

they began life
as a cluster of whispering voices
in a seabottom choir

they have evolved
into a shout
across the vasty deeps of time

to remind me
how old I truly am
and how young is the world
