Small stone 1/8/13

I am full body and thick bones.  If I travel to you through ether, then it is not me weaving a shirt for you from pine needles.  It is not me feeding you stone soup and snow bread that will only break butter.  

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. I am a little puzzled by this me understand Sus?

    • Aw–just read it and enjoy the pictures–you don’t have to “get” it 😉

      • That I did already :-)..thought there was something deeper I was missing.

        • Poetry (at least mine) is not a coded puzzle. A “small stone” which is what this is, is a thought that is complete. I might build it into another work. I might leave it right where it is and decide it is just what it is–a pebble–not to be part of graveling a path or building a wall–it might just sit there, winking at me for a while.

        • Okay, I will have mercy on you and explain this one a little–you caught me in the middle of writing and I ended up “speaking to you in poetry,” as I call it. So, my answer told you nothing. This came from a dream. If I am sleeping, and doing impossible things, is it me doing them, or am I still asleep, innocent of everything absurd my mind might cook up?

    I like the imagery and the incongruous elements. Very dreamy.

  5. ‘It is not me feeding you stone soup and snow bread that will only break butter.’ That is just awesome, Susan. I love it.

    beautiful imagery, Susan.

  7. Maybe I’m weird but I did find a message that’s concrete which embodies a composite of air, water, fire and earth~ I loved the stone soup thrown in the ethereal spirit of your stanza!
