write a small stone today (& hurrays & thankyous)

in honour of this year's River of Stones, rather than reading a small stone today I'd like you to write one and post it here. here's our Hurrays & Thankyous post with links to all our marvellous guest bloggers.

while I'm at it, a huge thank you to all the contributors and readers of a handful of stones over the years. you rock. (hee hee)

quarter moon
leaving us behind
all the feathers
of his sky in our hands
our sweet parakeet

January 31, 2012- SmallStones
on our way to the food bowl
by Teri H Hoover

On our way to the food bowl
sun shines on the new day.
My dog whirls right by me,
dancing with anticipation-
while I scoop up dog toys off the TV room floor.
This momma bird lets the toys fall into their bin.
A small red heart squeaks out,
"I love you!"

For a month I joined with hundreds of people in the January 2012 River of Stones . Taking time to pay attention to at least one thing everyday... and write that observation into words. I am glad to have found this little river and have been participating since January 2011. Great thanks goes to Fiona Robyn's Writing Our Way Home community and for bringing this idea to life, and coordinating it for all of us. I will continue to observe my world with images and words, finding that I am always where I need to be- even when it does not feel right. This little practice brings light to many things; not all are comfortable- but with love I am transformed to seeing the blessings. May there always be a little light in your heart. And if it seems dark know that there are people out there carrying a little light for you. Blessings - teri
