Category: Small Stones (page 1 of 10)

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.

autumn afternoon
acorns tap free rhythms
on a gray Prius

the sky wrapped
all the trees in rain
thunder days

wide-eyed little boy
holding my hand in parking lots
school’s coming so fast


This Is Not a Journal: Who Holds Your Hand?

lone cirrus wisp
a temporary arrow
pointing back toward home

sulphur butterfly
stone skipping across the sky
wind and highway noise

blue morning
ghost of a moon smile
three vultures



PAD #3: Three (blank)


my yard work helper
throws mud, laughing

high forties
running through sprinklers
in filthy pj’s

red bud blossoms
flickers of warmth
in grey fog

rain lilies           dawn’s fading stars

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