Skimming

I don’t like skimming the open sea. Mermaids snatch my stones.

I prefer rock pools. Calm. Collected. Free of ripples (apart from my own).

I savour every bounce. Every one.

Even the ricochets

(I love that word).

Do the stones cheer as they fly?

After millenia of shaping.

I hope so.

My soul cheers as they glide.
