a river of stones: day one

two neighbors stand in the
wee morning hours    
laughing companionably

one reaches for the
other's hand
and clasps it
as
i walk by

they both turn to me and say

'good morning.'

During the month of July, I have committed to participating in a river of stones, International Small Stones Writing month. A small stone is a polished moment of paying proper attention.  
Hope you enjoy.
