Eating from ironstone dishes,
Fine stoneware, resistant to chips.
Heart of stone, unbroken, unmoved, unchipped.
Leaving stones unturned and why?
A decision cast in stone, to cast a
stone, but not in a glass
house of my own making, a
stepping stone to somewhere
else/elsewhere, my where
a stone’s throw away.
This was written in response to Miz Quickly’s Day Seven challenge in which we were to select several words and just keep writing to see where we were led. “Stone” is the word that struck me and stuck.
