Small Stones

Lara Simmons on July 7th, 2011 1 Comment

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

Swish, swish, swish;

swish, swish, swish.

The sound of counting out

welcomes the start of a three-day weekend.

This is a small stone I wrote last Saturday at the end of my shift.

A small stone is “a very short piece of writing that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment” and this month writers from around the world are participating in a community writing event known as “A River of Stones.

This event was created by a lovely British woman named Fiona who loves writing, encouraging others to write, living fully and encouraging other to do the same.

Here are some more examples from my stream:

Zoe yogurt

Peanut butter swirled with chocolate

In a compostable cup—

Doubly delicious. My son

Huge white teeth like chiclets in his smile

sweet.

    On the spot, inspired by your post, here’s a small stone: Laughter bubbles up, over the walls, in the halls. Even a gray day boasts sunshine among friends.
