The rules are very simple:
“1. Notice something properly every day during January.
2. Write it down. It’s that simple!”
The resulting small stone does not have to have a set style/format or a certain number of words of syllables; but they do tend to be short and sweet.
I am sharing them here in the hope that they might inspire others to make some small stones of their own, and to give you a glimpse into the world as I see it each day.
Jan 1st and 2nd
I missed the start by a couple of days so no small stones I’m afraid!
This woodland stands, roots deep in frigid leaf mulch,
Chilled, stilled and abandoned,
It echoes with birdsong.
New year’s New moon
Shines its silver, lopsided grin
Making promises for 2014.
Those clouds are gold, buttered gold
Spread thick and shimmying at speed across the sky.
I will share these snippets in ‘week long’ collections, so pop back next Sunday for the next installment. And please feel free to share your own in the comments.
Here’s to a bright and inspiring January for us all!
