Finding things never before seen

Like a ridged mountain with Rocky hills

See through like dirty glass smeared with dirt

Questions through the valleys

How did it get here?

Thousands of miles traveled from the Sea

Currents and waves

Months if not years

Spent traveling the ocean

Layer after layer you can count

While the flaky crumbs fall off
