My Moon Rock

It was jus’ sitting in the sandy earth as I walked by it. At first, I thought it was a piece of plastic or perhaps colored glass or maybe a bit of ceramic.

I picked it up, discovering it was a rock.

Its layers of color jus’ didn’t look natural, especially the light blue one. I had never seen a rock like it.

Eventually, I showed it to a Paiute elder. He said it fell to earth from the moon.

And until I have a better explanation for not only its colors — but why I couldn’t find another one like it in the area — I’ll take the elder at his word.
