Heart of Stone

Welcome to week 4 of the 52 Weeks of Photos & Haiku– the photo challenge is hosted by the crafty and gifted Jamie at Bluedaisyz, and the Haiku challenge is hosted by the debonair wordsmith Ronovan at RonovanWrites.   He gives two words which need to be incorporated into the Haiku.  Sounds easy, so I thought.  The limitations really tested me.  This weeks photo word is ‘small’ and the Haiku words are ‘fret & chill’.  When you’re done here, hop on over and give them both a visit.  It’s never too late to join in!

Though not my first week adding a Haiku to my photo, it is the first time it was part of a challenge, prompted by this weeks Blogging 101 assignment “Try Another Blog Event”.  Now that the formalities are over, on to the fun stuff….

♥               ♥               ♥               ♥               ♥               ♥               ♥               ♥               ♥               ♥  

This stone fits this weeks theme of ‘small’ just perfectly.  Meant to be mine, it stood out from among thousands of larger and showier stones. Right time, right place, right glance downwards, and there it was!  Nature never fails to impress does it?

With a numbing chill

A heart of stone frets away

To its diamond core

  2. Lovely little poem,very philosophical and pleasant to read , we all chip away at the outside to reveal the beauty within , you have captured this wonderfully here.

    I would also like thank you for your lovely comment on my post yesterday, unfortunately I lost the comment; I must have just hit the wrong button before I had finished reading , but I saw that you googled the subject and this was so good to hear , as so little knowledge of this is out there , we had a lovely day today , we painted and made buns and I was so thankful to have spent a lovely day with her , she is doing well and full of cheer and told us all today she is going to be a vet when she grows up , so thanks again for reading and lots of good wishes and blessings to you and your loved ones. Kathy.

    • Kathy, I was very touched by your post. Keep sharing the difficult days with us. If you could take on her pain as your own, I just know you would. The way you enrich her life is very meaningful and helps her state of mind. That’s as important in her healing as much as anything else is. It is lovely to hear she is planning her future, we should all be so full of that optimism when feeling unwell. All the best, Melissa Xx
      p.s. and thanks for you kind words and understanding of my poetry.
