#AwakeAugust 2016 – Small Stone (9) – Quiet House


even with the absence of
ringing of phones,
dialogue and songs of
television or radio …
even with void of ongoing din of
dishwasher, washer or dryer …Small Stone 2015
even while the
animal companions sleep
as well as the
absence of another human
traipsing about

there are
thunderous sounds
in a quiet house

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!

  1. Beautifully observed, Becca ~ though I can always hear the hum of the fridge/freezer in my house. I’m used to that, though! 🙂
