Silent Stones

I have ben painting animals on rocks – this years Christmas gift project for my best friends. The ones who will not snicker when they open the package. One calico cat is finished and it looks at me with a bewildered expression as I cover another small rock with white paint. This stone is destined to become an owl for a friend who throws shoes at the squirrels in her garden. I have no illusions that this owl will do anything other than make her smile.

Lost Peace

Some where buried
under the chaos
of everyday

peace has gotten lost
but I will find it with
my eyes closed

I will hunt by
feeling with the
fingers of my heart

searching among the
stones that were
thrown until I touch

the smooth, comforting
warmth that is my peace
