Mindful Writing Challenge: Day 12

Today’s Small Stone is in honor of my cousin Judy on her birthday. I can believe it has been almost a year.

Judy’s Ripple

In life’s lake you are the stone
that skipped and scuttled
dancing ripples on it’s watery skin.
In your trace, the sun sparkled
wave tips across the pond of life
you made it to the other end
but too soon, we lost you my friend.
