another small stone journey

the unaccountably placed vent

in the canal bank

leaks warm steam

into sharply cold air


a small white circle of bread

placed into two hands

worn by a lifetime of work


a bowl of steaming soup

placed in front of exhaustion

Very nice, Andy, and I especially like the last stone about the “bowl of steaming soup placed in front of exhaustion.” Who has not been there, or will not be there in the future.”

thanks George. I’ve really enjoyed the challenge of writing a small stone each day this month – and it has been a real lifeline in a time which has been a bit pressured and fraught for one reason and another.

Yes, I really like these too. What a wonderfully creative ‘discipline’ to do each day.

thanks – yes, it has been good. I might take a day or two’s break and review what I have written, but I’ll definitely be carrying on. There are also a couple of small stones which might make the basis of slightly more substantial poems.
