The idea of writing “small stones” comes from Satya Robyn and Kaspalita, teachers of mindfulness writing and creators of the Facebook group, Small Stones-Writing Our Way Home. Group members post brief “mindful” observations of their day, sometimes prose and often free verse, Elfjes or haikus,* sometimes illustrated with a photograph. You are welcome to join this very supportive group!
I’ve decided to copy my small stones here on my own website, since mindfulness/ observation, and experiencing oneself as part of Nature are aspects of the Nature Wisdom Journey.
*fyi, the poetic form for a haiku is 3 lines, of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. An Elfje consists of 5 lines, of 1,2,3,4, and 1 word(s).
