I am taking part on writing small stones every day. A small stone as quoted by Fiona Robyn in her e-book How to Write Your Way Home is a short piece of writing which describes something you’ve observed carefully. It doesn’t matter whether it’s in sentences or verse. It doesn’t matter whether it’s about a roast potato or a sunset or the mud on the bottom of your boots. These 3 steps will help us how to be more observant with our world thereby allowing us to appreciate the beauty around us in its simplest forms.
1. Keep your eyes, nose, mouth, fingers, ears and mind open.
2. Notice what happens around you and inside you.
3. Write it down.
This month I will be joining the river of stones where I have to write one small stone everyday, taking notice of one thing and writing it down. Here I am sharing my 5 days worth of small stones.
A black and white sky, setting the mood gloomy. A dog’s loud bark from the distance, waking me up from my silent walk.
Tucked in my warm bed, a loud burst of rain from the sky. Mom’s freshly washed clothes will have to wait for the sun to dry.
My eyelids heavy, head floating, body tired. Symptoms of sleeping at 3am.
Huge chunks of cucumber, turned into one cold and thick smoothie with a tangy hint aftertaste, a sweet reminisce.
Almost like a statue as I sit in front of my laptop, not moving except blinking. Not doing anything except straining. Symptoms of the last day of weekend.
It’s a whole new way to take delight on every thing around us. The wind suddenly seems louder, a weed suddenly seems beautiful. If we know how to appreciate every little thing around us, then life would be beautiful, it would be sweeter.
Please join the community and have fun!
