In the hollow with Barley this morning.
From a distance,
the rocks that make up the creek bed appear to be a uniform gray,
but on closer inspection, certain patterns appear.
There are dimpled rocks,
rocks with gray, orange and tan coloration,
rocks with large indented arcs,
rocks that look like maps,
striped rocks, petrified wood, sparkly rocks,
rocks enclosing treasures,
like puzzle pieces strewn out by a careless giant.
