Small Stones (2)-Pain

peels, dark green, wet, slimy

curled around the fingers

wrapping like snakes 

drawing gasps of pain

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. Searching for small stones encourages you to keep your senses on the β€œalive and alert” status. Involve yourself with a new set of eyes, ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind. This is Mindful Writing at its best. 

Many thanks to Becca Givens for introducing me to Mindful Writing.
