As I posted before, I have decided to participate in River of Stones. I have not been posting my writing on my blog each day but I have been keeping it in my journal. I figured I would post all the ones that I have done so far.
A River of Stones January 2012 is where people are encouraged to:
1. Notice something properly every day during January.
2. Write it down.
Day 1 – Tick, he inhales loudly, click, he gently rumbles, clack, he lets out his great big sigh. For the warmth he provides it is worth listening to all his groaning.
Day 2 – The hardened coolness of the dark chocolate dissolves into a divine mess of warmth oozing over my tongue. The taste lingers. I want more.
Day 3 – My authorhood dreams leave shiny scars on my favourite laptop keys.
Day 4 – Each tiny tendril weaves around the next creating the ivy jungle which is now lush and thick. Is there still a fence behind there?
Day 5 – In passing, beauty hides behind a drunken mask. Up close, pieces of her elegant youth can escape between the cracks.
Day 6 – Rain dapples the earth leaving behind muddy holes and wormy smells.
Day 7 – Droplets of water spread fast and furious once they ripple out they can never be the same again.
Day 8 – Eyes widen, ears attune to every sound, and hairs stand up. The night senses get put to the test.
Day 9 – The cool, slick freshness of clean bed linen has its place but the rumpled warmth and comfort of the familiar is not bad either.
