Small Stone – Day 18

Small Stone

Small Stone

Driving along winter wrecked landscape
Oasis island of scenery emerges
Off lonely paved lane
Seems so out of place
Balm for my spirit
Couple of horses gently foraging in the sun
Soaking up warmth; enjoying milder winter weather
Paddock surrounded by bright white rails
Nice drive to the vet
Jazzy, our porch cat, is ready for home
Another round of medicine

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!
