For A River of Stones

Sometimes a poem is so alive,
one can feel it flutter
in the palm of a hand
writing it.

  1. Really the best! I love this image, or maybe is will crawl away on tiny feet or curl up in a furry ball for a winter’s nap.

      This one came last night as I was falling alseep. This morning when I was getting out of bed, I saw an image in my head of a hand with a small bird in the cupped palm, and remembered the thought from the night before. Wish they were all that persistant, lol. Thanks Annell,

    Thank you Connetta, I had some help with a couple of images. And an old poem I read just a few days ago. It all works.

    It does all work, doesn’t it. I think it’s one of the reasons we write. That and the feel of the poem in our hands. That is a lovely image, Elizabeth.
