From rejected to cornerstone

Another foggy morning,
and the styrofoam block
that floated into our lagoon
turns from light to dark,
adding definition
to an otherwise gray world.
Yet another instance
where something we
who are the builders of our world
want to hate
or reject
becomes the cornerstone
of some larger world-view.
But I forget:
You already know
about that sort of thing --

I'd like the image better without the block of styrofoam but then that would be manipulating reality; some (though certainly not I) think we always have to accept things as they are.
