"Stones would play, inside her head"
Song lyrics from a Neil Diamond tune
I listened to many years ago with
the curve of a smile upon my lips.

When stones hit heads and bodies
enforcing ancient religious customs,
or thrown during social-political rages,
I sometimes ponder the stone.

Would it condone its usage?
Somewhere inside,
does a spirit hide,
repulsed by human hands?

Hold a stone to your heart sometime.
Feel the stored spirit of Gaia.
Then ask yourself what truths
the stone reveals.

~hey, midnitesunshine...  

this is very interesting...


Hold a stone to your heart sometime.

Then you are one of the enlightened ones.
Thank you, for reading and understanding
the heart of the stone.
Most just consider them an 'inanimate' conglomeration of minerals.
Such a crying shame!

A stone may feel cold to some, but to me it holds the hearts of many.  The next one I pick up will warm me with thoughts of you.  Thank you, Kacy.  RIP

Kacy, I found this today by mere chance after talking to Sara by email.  I see and hear you in every aspect of my indigenous forest garden, and feel a more direct line of communication now, even than our emails.  Rest in peace, and dance in peace and delight, as you do with my trees when the wind blows.  

Hugs and smiles through the tears
Owl
