January is the month of Mindful Writing: Small stones

Small Stones - 2014

What are small stones?

A small stone is a short piece of writing (any style) that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment for you. The process of discovering small stones is as significant as the finished creation.

Malaise, despair or buried pain

 

The alarm sounds

Silently I face the clock, the murmurs fade

I throw back the covers,

 Relieved that choice is gone.
