Another poem -

This poem is from a book "Stone, Bow, Prayer," by Amy Uyematsu

Let me hear
the clarity of stone,
one small enough
to hold, its cool
singular weight
in my warm hand.

Let me lay stone
in still water, on white
sand or paper -
the only adornment
I need
to give me this
place I look out from,
to speak my own
simple name.

I am reminded of the stones my son Jeff skipped on the marsh side of Rodeo Beach a few days after my operation. We gathered them up from the sand, and he skipped them on that flat water like ducks reaching for land.
