small stones

By way of Four Winds Haiga a poetry and photography blog that is always beautiful and inspiring, I learned about a poetry/prose concept called "small stones" developed by Fiona Robin and gathered into a lovely blogzine called "a handful of small stones."

The idea behind "small stones" is to create more mindfulness (a wonderful Buddhist concept) of the world around us, to make us more aware and more attentive to life, and then to attempt to distill insights and observances into small verbal packages of poetry or prose.

Something to try for in the future.
