all one thing

we are busy
just holding
atoms together

the stones
intent
on being stones

my body
maintaining itself

while water
gently, slowly
makes stone less stone
& me less I

in currents
stroking loss
of a little bit of self

I can only
know as pleasure

I do not know
what the stones feel

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?

  1. Lovely. Step into the flowing water and it washes some of particles from you, refreshing you, renewing you…..the same flowing water slowly, almost imperceptibly, steadily washes atoms from stone, shaping it and smoothing it as flows over it.
