Aqua Stone


strolling along the rivers bank
pale lavender gray stones
one caught my eye
a turquoise beauty
made me think of you

placed in the waters edge
its brilliance came to life
found more colorful pretties
for a stone mandala
a photograph for you
now you get the lovely stone
water and light too
