Wishing Well

I carry secrets
like stones in my pockets
They click together, heavy,
as I move forward.

One day
I will take my
secret stones,
smooth and worn,
and throw them
in a deep well,
never to be
found.

And when I look down
I will see one sparkling,
gem among the stones.

  3. Does that mean you have one HUGE doozie of a secret?
    Even if you do, your story/poem was beautiful and deep.

    1. Truth is I got the idea from a book I'm reading called "The Blook Spilt" by Asa Larson. I wondered if I should have included it in my little blurb after the verse.

  5. I like this very much. Wonderful idea to keep the secrets hidden away but to keep the BEST one closer to view!

  6. I sure like this idea. Guess we all carry some secrets. Nice to throw them in a well and hope a gem stands out.

  7. Don't know if it's good or bad to have a diamond among the stones--does it console with its beauty, or just emphasize how ugly the rocks are? Love the ripples and shadows here, Mary.

  8. Chuck them down a well, that would be swell. But don't fall in. Lassie may not be around to help you out lol
