Skipping Stones

Rating: 4.5
Perhaps they don’t throw stones
Simply skipping them instead
Picking and choosing only the best
Sleek, slim, rounded at the edges
Such as will easily skim along the surface
Lacking desire to plum the depths

We, poets, observe them
Driven to distraction at times
Amused at other junctures
Maddened as well in turn

Mary, your analogy using stones is outstanding! Anyone reading this poem for its deeper meaning will get a very valuable lesson in life. Too often, we skim the surface without taking life and our experiences seriously enough. Beautiful write! Take care, Beth
