Suture lines like hieroglyphics etched across a shell

now long turned to stone, proclaim

"I was here"

"I was alive"

"I swam in this salty sea"

now long dried to dust, yet still present

across this arid land.

They don't show up for very long, if they even do, so a pretty cool bonus! :)

Indeed. :) From a distance, you would not even notice most of these. I will have to go back when there is less flowers to see how many fossils I walked by.
