Turning a stone

When you turn a stone

you never know in advance what you’ll find underneath

will you find some common muddy soil

or perhaps an inoffensive earthworm

or a dangerous snake

will you find the entrance to an underground crypt leading to a world

a world of magic, or a world of ghosts

or perhaps you’ll find a gem

or the entrance to a moonstone mine

You never know beforehand no matter how pretty the stone is

you cannot know what you’ll find underneath

so if the taste of adventure is stronger than the sense of prudence in your blood

turn the stone and discover what it hides
