Resetting the Stones

The old stones scattered
the walls, the foundation
needing resetting,
back to the beginning
its original purposes

Matching the rocks
placing the stones
together again
bound together
for their original purpose

Called together
shaking off the dirt
wiping them clean
resetting the stones
for a new purpose
supporting us all
and the work
we are all called to do
