What are small stones?

A small stone is a short piece of writing (any style) that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment for you. The process of discovering small stones is as significant as the finished creation. Searching for small stones encourages you to keep your senses on the “alive and alert” status. Involve yourself with a new set of eyes, ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind. In short … OPEN, OPEN, OPEN!

#AwakeAugust 2016 – Small Stone (26) – Nature’s Schedule

#AwakeAugust2016

Small Stone 2015
younger limbs of trees
bowing under summer heat
releasing gentle cascade of leaves
driveway playground for
swirling, darting, dashing, chasing
nature is on schedule
even if I am not

#AwakeAugust 2016 – Small Stone (25) – Hummers

#AwakeAugust2016

Small Stone 2015

Discernible song
I perceive nigh
Prompts and beckons me to witness
Appreciation for nectar
In the feeder

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

In this amazingly competitive society of ours, how many of us truly feel good about ourselves? How often do we extend to ourselves … the same courtesies, considerations, nurturing, forgiveness and understanding we would a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

Our culture tells us we need to be special and above average to feel good about ourselves. Yet, it is not possible for all of us to be above average at the same time. Don’t we usually know of someone richer, more attractive, “more together” or successful than we are? Even if we discount the material aspects and consider the more spiritual facet, don’t we know of those who seem more at peace, more aware or living in the moment. Even when we do manage to feel a strong sense of self-esteem or self-confidence, we are not able to consistently hold on to it. For most, our sense of self-worth bounces around like a ping-pong ball, rising and falling strongly tied with our latest success or failure.

In an effort to eliminate labeling ourselves as “good” or “bad”, and clearly accept ourselves with an open heart … to treat ourselves with the same kindness, caring, and compassion we would show to a good friend … I would like to incorporate more self-compassion and self-kindness in my life.

To “give this planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy” … I am dubbing Thursdays as Nurturing Thursday.

If any of my readers are interested in joining the nurturing, I applaud and welcome you to do so … the more the merrier!!

#AwakeAugust 2016 – Small Stone (24)

#AwakeAugust2016

Small Stone 2015
Large brown box
Unexpected arrival
From unlikely sender
Framed Rainbow Bridge poem
With image of our strong spirit boy
Out of character note
More than our lives influenced

Mindful organizing

Through the lens of my camera
Mementos for my eyes
Delight to my spirit
Frame by frame

#AwakeAugust 2016 – Small Stone (20) – Umbrella

#AwakeAugust2016

Small Stone 2015
during stormy weather
the white mushroom umbrella
which stood tall on stark wet ground
giving respite to tiny insects
and one tiny frog
has toppled over
from weariness

#AwakeAugust 2016 – Small Stone (19) – Stormy Sky

#AwakeAugust2016

Small Stone 2015

subtle shades of grey
from delicate to smoky
create a marbled stormy sky
animated characters
scurry in the wind
