A Small Wedding Stone for Fiona and Kaspalita

Fiona and Kaspalita, the founders and curators of the River of Stones, are getting married on Saturday, June 18th. Their wedding wish is for as many people as possible to join in and send them a small stone, an observation, as a gift. If you’d like to send them an observation, stop and notice something small, pay attention to it, and write it down. Polish it up and send it on their wedding day, using the wedding wish link, above. You might also like to consider writing small stones for a whole month for the July River of Stones. Here is my very small stone for the wedding river.

Watching a blackbird
strut and flirt
and puff his scarlet epaulettes
I wonder
if in this moment
Fiona and Kaspalita are saying their vows

    Red Tailed Hawk flies low
    Robins, sparrows, and mockingbirds lay low
    Out of the East come two Ravens
    Diving out of the Sun they attack
    Joined together their strength prevails

    I wondered the same thing a few times yesterday. Great stone!
