The Island Was a Rock

Purple water glints.  Plants grow 
in cracks on an ancient
rock that shrinks, crushed under
waves, and disappears from sight, or
on an ancient rock that builds
itself up, sun high above, to tower
over pebbles and sea life. The choice
to stay what it is or create
the island is unknown to us, but held
in conference
among plants, ancient rock, and purple
water.
