Every Day

Another day, another sunrise, another miracle
scattered along the path.
Ho hum.
I count them off with tally marks
 otherwise I would lose track

Smooth stones
each one makes ripples in the pool
as I drop them
the circles spread apart
farther and farther

Shadows meet and bow and dance

  1. Read my mind: the first thing I think of when I see rocks like those is "How far can I toss these?"

  2. Mary....?
    You could have saved this for next week ya know.
    But your prolific nature is just fine with me.
    Most excellent 55 My Friend

    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  3. Got to see how far they can skip
    Bend and toss from the hip..haha

  4. very cool you pass along your blessings in the ripples of the pond...and enciting dancing is a good thing eh?

  5. This is great, with wonderful images, and I smiled at the "ho hum"!

  6. Very deep and beautifully written.

    Anna :o]

  7. Thank you all. I'll be around soon to check out all your words of wisdom. :o)

  8. This is a very incisive look at how tuned out we get, yet it seems to pivot midway to the exact opposite in a zennish sort of way, ending in a place where shadows are real. I like it a lot.

  9. i love the image of dropping stones and their ripples as a metaphor for spreading joy and love maybe beyond our own circles...who knows where the ripples end..they can go far.. very nice..

  10. Hedgewitch - Thanks...yes, I wondered if the shift was too abrupt. Glad you like it!

    Claudia - Thank you! Spreading the good stuff is what it's all about!
