Small Stones

For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end
is to make a beginning.
- T.S. Eliot

I thought I might try this challenge
as a way of continuing to fight
the word block.

1 January 13

There is only treelight and candlelight and
a wet torrent teeming over the roof above.

As I sit in this semi-silence, I wish for sleep,
and I think, Day One... and how fitting it is
that it has all begun with the washing rain.

And George Eliot echoes in my head,
"It's never too late to be what you might have been."

Happy New Year.
Thank you for seeing me through.



  1. Candle light and rain sound like bliss to me. I hope you get some peaceful sleep and that 2013 will be your best year yet!

  2. happy new year.
    i count "you" one of my blessings of 2012.
    i'm joining you, small stones et al.

  3. Emma, It was lovely. :) Happy New Year to you and yours. <3

    Marie- and you among mine ... <3

  4. I think you have it right and wrong, Miss Rosy. I think you've seen us through as well with your splendiferous creations. Happy 2013. And here's to becoming what you might have been. Love that quote!

    1. Janet, you have been with me from day one. I have not forgotten. Never will. Thank you. <3
