A Million Pebbles

A Million Pebbles

a million pebbles
worn smooth
tumbled low
and placed, just so
in symmetry and pattern.

maybe two million
with each a story to share

where they came from
and why they are going
and where

their distinct voice
lost, in their number…
speaking life’s measure

here they claim
a necessary charm
which all debate
and then berate
for something less warm.

but what is in a number?
