I am on no island

not sitting but curved against stone
smoothed to skin smoothness
by stroking water

my hands mirror
that caress

marvel
at that sleek shape
patience has carved
over eons

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    So true… there’s wonder everywhere one looks, and the best comes with patience.

    Very nicely depicted !!!

  4. A patient carver is patience., slowly she smoothens rough ragged edges, and so too does it carve our minds with care and compassion. The photo says it all…and the shoot that struggles through crack also has a message of its own! Well done, Susan!

    • Thank you, Noel…And that shoot in the crack will split that rock with a magic of its own, life rising from stone that will eventually split my turtle rock down the middle in defiant joy 🙂
