my small stones
for January 2012

2012-01-31
giving myself a-
way to open my life a-
gain ~ new year of growth

2012-01-30
meadowlands dressed in
winter white, remain full of
color in our dreams

2012-01-29
furry feline friends
faithfully follow forlorn;
fuzzy feelings felt

2012-01-28
catching up with friends
online, by phone, in person ~
truly time well spent

2012-01-27
warmth of sunshine and
clarity of cloudless skies
resound love’s echoes

2012-01-26
sometimes old habits
rear their ugly heads when you’re
least expecting them

2012-01-25
thunder, rain and wind ~
God’s orchestration of sound
echoed through the night

2012-01-24
raindrops sliding down
window panes on a gray day ~
life- and love-lines meet

2012-01-23
death knocked on his door
far too soon for her to be
prepared for alone

2012-01-22
daily surprises
given from a heart of love
never disappoint

2012-01-21
hidden messages
for one’s love to discover ~
a lingering scent

2012-01-20
dreams are a good thing
dreams that are shared with someone
are even better

2012-01-19
life, laughter, and love ~
great to have all three; even
better: found in one

2012-01-18
murphy’s law at work
monkey wrenches tossed about
roll with the punches

2012-01-17
massage therapy
is good for more than muscles ~
soothing for the soul

2012-01-16
morning wake-up call
brings a smile to the face of
a would-be night owl

2012-01-15
clouds blocking the sun
don’t create total darkness
keeping eyes closed does

2012-01-14
telephone call, a
reminder of being loved ~
dimples appearing

2012-01-13
darkness fades away
sun peeks over horizon
a new day dawning

2012-01-12
dark is not so dark
when listening to the sound
of a lover’s voice

2012-01-11
bubbles dance freely
across a sleeping window ~
idle thoughts now flow

2012-01-10
giving time to the
important people:  family ~
my priority

2012-01-09
momentary pause
amidst a busy work day
priorities change

2012-01-08
sun is still shining
though it is hidden by clouds ~
I’m living by faith

2012-01-07
flashes of childhood
are seen around each corner ~
antiquing with Mom

2012-01-06
the spray of water
can cleanse more than the outside ~
worries wash away

2012-01-05
timing’s everything –
flowers blooming in winter;
hearing a friend’s voice

2012-01-04
open sunroof lets
in warm rays and cool breezes ~
soothing happiness

2012-01-03
sometimes just a word
is all that’s needed to warm
from the inside out

2012-01-02
miles between people
can disappear when you are
closerthanthisclose

2012-01-01
new year beginning
can be more than just turning
a calendar page

  2. Love these small stones, Paula. Especially beautiful is 4 & 5! Wow!

    Thank you so much, Judy. I enjoyed the month of July with my first dip into “the river” — and am already enjoying this month of stones, as well. What is fun is looking back at the end of the month and remembering all of those small, precious sites/sounds/moments of time. ~Paula

  3. Oh, Paula!
    I love your haiku’d stones. I have had a waterfall of words this past week. Surgery a month ago followed by lots of pain meds, and three weeks worth of house guests limited my ability to write. Now I am working through the process of reigning in the flow. I think I’ll follow your suit and work toward haiku-precision as an aide. Thank You!!!!!

    Thank you for this note, Kim. I’ve loved using the haiku form to sharpen my focus on each particular “stone”. I’ll look for you in the river! 🙂 ~Paula
