#AwakeAugust 2016 – Small Stone (6) – Cardinals


Small Stone 2015
two bright red cardinals
darting among branches and leaves
of nearby ash
intermittent resting and plunging
in the iridescent glimmer
along roof-line
clogged gutter
full of water

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!

    I do envy you the beauty of the cardinal. We do not have them here but do have blue jays and red breasted robins.
