The rock is layered.The rock is jagged. It breaks through the soil. It cuts down to the sea. The turquoise sea That takes the light From the sun And makes it different.

The vines cling Perilously To the rock. Their roots dig deep Searching Splitting Shattering Rock and soil, Looking for water.

The homes cling Perilously To the Rock. They become villages. Right down to the sea.

The stone sits, Set on rock. Perpendicular. Layers upon layers. Ochre, purple, Obsidian Pale.
