two bright red cardinals
darting among branches and leaves
of nearby ash
intermittent resting and plunging
in the iridescent glimmer
full of water

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!
