Fiona Robyn has posted a short poem I wrote for her blog, A Handful of Stones. Each day Fiona posts a different ‘small stone,’ an observation of the world or a fleeting thought or feeling. As Fiona says, “a small stone is a polished moment of paying proper attention.” The one from me she included is called Coiffure. Thanks, Fiona!
Fiona is a poet and a novelist. Her debut novel, The Letters, is now available through Amazon. Her next novel, The Blue Handbag, will be released in August of this year. Both books are with Snowbooks.
