Having recently come across A river of stones at www.writingourwayhome.com I decided that taking up the challenge of mindful writing every day for a month would be a great way to both expand my writing practice and to ignite my dormant blog.
On their website Fiona and Kaspa describe the practice of writing ‘small stones’ as ‘extremely simple and extraordinarily powerful’. And, well, if it’s not, it will be lovely to have a month of captured moments recorded. So, here goes…
Jan 2 Small Stone:
mother earth roars her welcome
the door knocker bangs in response.
their bodies leap to the floor – they know the drill.
they stumble, bleary eyed and alert, through the creaking house
once sleeping children’s cries.
