Welcome to my 'small stone' blog.
I hope you find
something here that will touch your heart. The poems here will all be very short, some will be a Haiku style, and were prompted by the 'a river of stones' project: http://ariverofstones.blogspot.com/2011/01/what-is-small-stone.html
Please sign my
guest book, your comments will be much appreciated.

shedding light within the heart
the Lamp of God
searchlight seeker
of dark places

Echoes of the sea:
washed up,
Purged by salty caresses;
yesterday’s dirt erased
in the forgiveness
of a daily tide.

Industrious by nature

Industrious by nature.

Here is feast aplenty,
the eye dwelling for a while
on comings and goings:
the bee-line.
This is no charity handout,
no floral soup kitchen,
but, here, the dust that settles
when industry is done
is golden promise.

The flight

The flight of locks -
eccentric name
for flight implies escape.
Narrow boats tumble slowly here
in stepped water;
gated breathing space.
Water runs away.
