a river of stones - day four

small stone #4

the small joy
of waking up
before the traffic roar

for a short time
all is still
and I am home

If you enjoyed this please click in the 'like' box below as your responses will help me choose which small stones to send in to Fiona to be considered for the book at the end of January. Thanks :)


  1. That's a good idea about the "likes" to help you out with submission later. Small joys are the best! Both of these are good stones :-)

  2. Thanks for reading and commenting, Lorrie. Yes, small joys open the heart :)
    This is all one stone (not two) - a short poem that reflected my morning, and even brought a tear to my eye.
