April prompt #17: WHAT MIGHT I BE INSTEAD

April prompt #17

If you were not a 21st century American, what else or who else might you have been?

David’s #1

I might have been

an erratic stone,

purple and gray,

carried from the shield

in a belly of ice,

resting now

between trees

on a mountain,

the mosses

layering thickly

on my skin.
