small stones - i miss

i miss
the clicking of keys next to the
tapping of
finger tips.
upright in beds till late,
being shaken awake,
just to push to the end
one more
Genius sat between us
smiling at
her magic,
made manifest in us.

small stones - one of those days

It's one of those days.
bright blue
electric white pillows
emerald green reaching up to meet someone.
the heavens know,
that somewhere,
is cause for joy-
so they have dressed accordingly.

a small stone - forgiveness

Tastes like strawberries
in Russell Square,
beneath trees older than
our numbers combined.

Smells like last summer, rain filled nights
new, just like

Looks like blue skies, blue
my smile, your smile.
is beautiful again, in the space where my heart hands out

small stones: a wedding present for some pretty great people...

ever wonder where small stones came from? well they came from two very sweet people, who want to bring the art of the written word to the world. Now they are getting married and they have asked for an equally sweet wedding present... i think one that's well deserved !!

Fiona and Kaspa have taken over my blog today, because they need our help...

They are both on a mission to help the world connect with the world through writing. They are also getting married on Saturday the 18th of June.

For their fantasy wedding present, they are asking people across the world to write them a ‘small stone’ and post it on their blogs or on Facebook or Twitter.

A small stone is a short piece of observational writing – simply pay attention to something properly and then write it down. Find out more about small stones here.

If you’re willing to help, we’d love you to do things:

1) Re-post this blog on your own blog any time before June the 18th and give your readers a chance to hear about what we’re doing. You can simply copy and paste the text, or you can find the html here.

2) Write us a small stone on our wedding day whilst we’re saying our vows and eating cake, post it on your blog, and send it to us.

You can find out more about our project at our website, Wedding Small Stones, and you can also read our blog at A River of Stones.

We also have a July challenge coming soon, when we’ll be challenging you to notice one thing every day during July and write it down.

Thank you for listening, and we hope we’ll be returning from our honeymoon to an inbox crammed with small stones, including yours.

small stone - giggles

It's nearly a cackle.
Low and deep, yet light and airy
weighed down with
the reality of life's unwanted gifts.
Aged, and exhausted
sounds bubble up and spill over
somehow lined with a glimmer
of hope in tomorrows that
are lined with joy
and flowing with promise.
I don't know how they do it - i'd love them to teach me.
