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.

cold crisp morning breaks
gulls gawk their early crying
sad in Autumn sky

Cracked ice,
included amber,
irritation in the oyster,
the splendorous itch.
The last unwrapping
of pass the parcel
and the smile
when it’s all over.
I am
perfectly flawed.

I wonder

I wonder if the distance holds
the wonders of its promise,
if the crawl toward its hiding place
can draw me to its maw.
Or if bruised and bloody-kneed I find
within its hidden grace
a troubled soul
and in disguise a yesterday.
Tomorrow holds no favour
no miracle to change the past
while earth binds me to its bosom
I wait for heaven’s grasp.
For heaven has no walking frames
within its open arms
and praising lips will open
where now they are stuck fast.
