Stones. Each one dropping into dark water.  Silent fall.  Ripples swallowed in their wake.  Indigo well.  My mind in quiet.  Finally finally.  Each stone given up to the deep.  A small sacrifice to sanity.  A burden I don’t need to carry. This is how I find sleep.  Giving them up.  One by one.  Until my hands are empty.  Empty.  And my heart is full again.

  3. A few photos to accompany your poetry, and you’ve got a best-seller on your hands. The pebble thing is more interesting than counting sheep, anyway.

    c’mon now.


    i know. i know. no room to talk. pffft.

    i dont know how to give up my ‘pretties’. i string my own stones into necklets/shackles – paint my name upon them and gather them into small cairns – wayside memorials.

    I’m so stoked for you that you’ve finally let yours go.
