Small Stones: Day Twenty Four

I have committed to participating in the National Month of Small Stones (read about it at A River of Stones, here). This will be a real challenge for me. Rather than my usual lengthy missives, I will be reigning in my writing muses and only writing a tiny nugget to capture what I've observed. The key is being open and aware, and noting the moment when it comes. For those of you who will miss my usual rambling, I'll be including a link to favorite "oldies" that I've written - just click on the red oldie title and the link will take you there.

Today's Small Stone...

A hawk circles the field
looking for food
as I dig through a box of crackers,
eating only the broken ones
in case I find something
to put on the whole ones.
Always, my life is in metaphor.

Favorite Oldie...

  1. Broken biscuits definately don't count, that's official! Love the image, yourself as a circling hawk, brilliant!
