small stone - Dec 31


The year of stepping into my life
Not a tiptoe
I jumped
I stamped

small stone - Dec 28

strawberry picking

from under the shelter 
a flash of red
sweet perfection awaits

small stone - Dec 26

Not as in calm
But length of time
and still
As in calm
and okay

two small stones - Dec 24

breathe in 
wafting hopes
and expand


dip into your past
splash around
dry off 
and return

small stone - Dec 23

happy chatter
from the neighbours' yard
lands on me

Catching and polishing these small stones is proving to be fun. Looking forward to pausing to find one each day in January!

Another small stone

slow drip
of chocolate melts
flowing paths
mini marshmallow puddings

Can't wait until January!

clatter, clatter
those mints
in the handbag jungle

I'm impatient! Couldn't wait until January. Wrote this small stone this morning.

International small stones writing month

I am looking forward to participating in International small stone writing month.

Fiona Robyn, project facilitator writes:

"Better than January resolutions... 'a river of stones' is an international project organised by Fiona Robyn to encourage people to engage with the world through writing a short observational piece every day during January. Click to find out more, and join us!"

Visit a river of stones to find out more about the project. I have set up this blog to write my one small stone each day in January. I have actually begun practicing already but am going to refrain from writing any here until January when I hope to write one a day. That will be a challenge!
