The cracked spine of the book 

digs through my palm 

The rustle of the pages 

brittle with age 

The musty odour wafting up 

Yellowing pages and faded words 

mingle with the bitter coffee 

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 “alive 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.

    1. Writing ‘Small Stones ‘ is a mindful way of living and expressing. I enjoy capturing these little moments very much. Perhaps you would like to try it too, especially with all the nature photographs that you post. Thanks so much for reading 🙂
