Small Stones are like finding art

A beautiful stone shell..

'Small stones' poetry 
 is like finding art.
Any kind of poetry is like that really.
I hope my small stones help
you, the reader,
see things as I see them.
The words of everyone's small stones
 allow entrance
into special places.
Please check out more small stones
by clicking on the
River of Stones logo in my sidebar.
My small stone for today was inspired by
Hawk's Alley near my home.
It is a 25 mile stretch of road that is home
to a large number of hawk species.
Soaring from broken woodlands
to summits of oak trees
scanning the world below
the Cooper's Hawk
finds it's ultimate perch and
adorns the top of the telephone pole
that leans into lost voices

Savor the Day!
