Small Stone

Last year, Alison Wells drew my attention to the River of Stones blog. I enjoyed reading what she wrote every day last January, but never had the urge to join in.


Today, however, when Alison posted her first small stone of 2012, I decided to jump into the river with her.

Here’s my first small stone:

When the sky turns this colour
I always think of you
And your first floor-length gown
Of a deep midnight blue
Nervously sophisticated
You stood by the door
And you waited
