Small Stones

Author and coach Fiona Robyn presents us with a nice month-long project a river of stones for the upcoming January. Her small stone is an exercise in poetic mindfulness that results in a concise piece of writing that “precisely captures a fully engaged moment.”

The small stone is the briefest of poems, somewhat related to the haiku and the American Sentence forms (only without the strictures of syllable counting and whatnot). But process is what’s important here — knowing that there’s a moment out there in the day that waits your noticing it puts you in a state of hunter’s receptivity. And then the writing of it becomes a meditation on intensity, simplicity and presence.
