The sight of water – small stone

even just the
sight of water
is enough to
slow the galloping
pony inside.
She stops
to watch the branch
touch sunny ripples and
hardly hears her
thunder heart over
the sweet robin

I’m writing small stones as part of the January Mindful Writing Challenge. Please feel free to comment! And come read more small stones on Twitter.


  1. “Galloping pony” and “thunder heart” – so descriptive. Glad you found a calming spot.

    1. Barb, thank you. We need these spots in the middle of the day.
