small stones : first day of school

first day of school

the wipers rub across
the windshield, a soundtrack
to my thoughts in
4/4 time, the turn signal
breaks up the
beat
of my heart
like your little hand
letting go
of mine

Amy Palko tweeted this morning about a wonderful writing practice which I intend to use. Ideally, I’d love to write one a day & post it here, to get back into the swing of writing since I haven’t been writing much lately but I will be kind to myself if I don’t. ;)

If you’re interested in knowing when I do post up a new one, you can sign up via email to receive new posts.

So, what is a small stone?

A small stone is a very short piece of writing that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment.

If you’d like to learn more about this practice, please see: How to Write Small Stones.

The concept is by the lovely Fiona Robyn. I connected with Fiona a couple of years ago when she posted one of my small stones on her blog, A Handful of Stones. She has an entire network of goodness going on at Writing Our Way Home & a free eBook I DEVOURED & adore.
