Category: small stones (page 1 of 9)

These small stones are short observational micro-poem-things mostly about nature. They are the result of paying close attention to the world around and writing from those moments. Learn more about writing small stones at Writing Our Way Home.

the road to summer
a field full of primroses
& a killdeer’s cries

spring wildflowers
the pennies I found
outside the jail

like Bashō
I walked the length of Japan
said Fitbit’s email

tree shadows
late sunset painted
on brick homes
Venus peeks out from
a cirrus curtain

the old dog’s ribs
shift with each breath
these long nights

the moon
cradled in elm
branches

plastic ghosts
sway on the wind

long autumn
shadows

full trees still
cling
to summer

a sulphur butterfly
rides prairie wind

late sunflowers
lean heavy
against a barbwire fence

everyone’s asleep
my footsteps in the dark house
the box fan rattles
