Small stones about small people

One of the many joys of spending my holiday with my family is the presence of my niece and nephews, who have inspired two of the small stone poems so far


Small stones 3 – Elevation

take three children
add a trampoline
expect exuberance

apply daily doses
for the duration of holiday
see spirits soar as bodies bounce


Small stone 6 – Epiphany

The tree is dismantled
The decorations packed away
The children help, reluctantly
Little left of the joy
Of the reverse operation.
