More Small Stones for 2014

Small Stone 2014

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 … open your heart, open your spirit, open your mind!

This is my journey for 2014!!


~ Small Stone ~ Summer Snow

Mid-afternoon thunderstorm
Rumblings herald its arrival
Outside darkened bedroom window
Crepe myrtle petals
Falling like snow
90 degree weather

~ Small Stone ~ Near Day’s End

near day’s end
with nature’s paint

~ Small Stone ~ Tiny Buds

naked trees form web of bones
while the moon is voyeuring
tiny buds await their moment

~ Small Stone ~ Morning Dew

Morning dew
Across garden path

~ Small Stone ~ Ruby Red Grapefruit

tired sunken eyes
blue veined fingers
thin and bony
Ruby Red grapefruit
with abandon

~ Small Stone ~ Mourning Doves

Mourning doves soft song
heard through
grey misty veil
in spite of
winter’s stronghold

~ Small Stone ~ Walk Barefoot

Yield to earth’s wisdom
Walk barefoot in blades of grass
Red cardinals wheet
