NaHaiWriMo #20

prompt: talus (scree)

in mudstone and shale
the ancient delta
spills from the rock face

In spite of the fact (or because?) I'm a geology graduate, I tend to shy away from writing about rocks. There's no good reason for this, I guess, except that it was part of my life 20ish years ago. Maybe I should dig out ('scuse the pun) my old notebooks to see if they spark any resonant memories.

I have written about scree before, though.

Found you on FB and followed the link to your blog. I'm looking forward to a geologist's perspetive through haiku.
