Perfect Stone
Stevie Stevenson – cutest guy in first grade.
Class trip, picnic by the pond.
He skipped stones across the pond.
He picked up the perfect stone for me.
Snuck into my pocket, kept it.
Looking at it made my heart
Skip a beat all summer.

Quadrille Monday

Today is Quadrille Monday at dVerse and I am prompting.  The word for today is “skip” and the variants of “skip”.  Come visit us and don’t skip reading the poems.  Poems must use the prompt word and not counting the title, be exactly 44 words in length, no more, no less.    https://dversepoets.com/2016/05/02/quadrille-8/

Skipping Hearts
You took me in your hand –
Felt the edges of me,
Weighed me in your hand
then looking at the horizon,
Pulled back your arm and threw me
Across the ocean of your heart –
skipped me
until I sunk in the depths
