Boulders, Rocks, Stones & Pebbles



millions of years old
you watched over the natives
mother of waters

This is in gracious response to One Deep Breath. This week's topic is Boulders, Rocks, Stones & Pebbles. Mount Rainier was originally known as Talol, or Tahoma, from the Lushootseed word təqʷúʔbəʔ ("mother of waters") spoken by the Puyallup.

Yes. A holy feel. Makes you wonder what is in those rocks besides rock.

I could have gone many directions with this, since I have a love affair with rocks of all shapes and sizes. However, I must add, that I think this photo was taken by my ex boyfriend, so he gets the all the kudos.

Peace~

This is fantastic....I love your referance to Mt. Ranier in her native tongue; it is great to have a historical context. The poem is so beautiful; it works wonderfully even if we did not know her prior name.
