Mindful Writing Day

My small-stone contribution to Mindful Writing Day hosted by Fiona Robyn on her blog Writing Our Way Home:

My eyes pause on a quilt stitched from different greens,
rolling on hills in the distance,
stretching to another land with another language.

Then, I gently bring my gaze back to the screen,
plumb my mind for words,
and stitch them together on the keyboard.
