Welcome to my blog devoted completely to the short written form known as a "small stone."  As you may know, this form is, by definition, a polished moment of paying proper attention to the world around us, i. e. , a precise capturing of a moment where you and your senses are fully engaged. Though there are no strict rules, it is important to remember the process by which you arrive at the polished stone is as important as the finished product. Try it yourself by writing one a day to start. You will soon begin to discover there is a marvelous richness and depth to your world you never noticed before! Let's begin.

some faces,
   soft leather

window screens
consist of
empty space

beneath a leaf
held to the light
tiny tributary streams
feed the river
in the stem
