Thank you yassy. That is appreciated.
Fantastic. Takes me back to my childhood ‘trying’ to skim stones, whilst watching my brother throw stones at people (accidentally, whilst also ‘trying’ to skim stones).

Cheers Dan. I hope you mentored your brother in the correct skill and techniques 🙂
Of course – we ended up throwing stones at each other!
Great game that is, Davy – or for me, was. Watched a recent (end September) tv programme on the World Stone Skimming Championships on Easdale Island near Seil Island and the ‘Bridge Over the Atlantic’ (on one of my old blogs).
I never knew there was a World Championship for this Roland. I better get practicing, there could be hope for an old dog yet.
That’s so deep!
Thank you Kavita. Your kind words are appreciated 🙂
Welcome Davy 🙂
This paints for a lovely picture and at the same time, the words are very meaningful.
Thank you NJ. Your kind words are much appreciated.
Well said. Ty
Thank you gemstars. I appreciate the kind comment.
I love it, Davy. I never got the skimming stone thing right. But I love the tone of this poem. And I know you must get tired of me talking about the imagery, but you do, indeed, capture it so well in so few words.There’s something about being surrounded by nature that reminds us of time passing.
Thank you Laura. I agree nature provides us with some great energy for thought and reflection. I have said this before, but I think my work as a writer is to pass on what nature gives to us.
When I was just a girl of twelve or so, my father read Robert Frost to me. That made a lasting impression. I don’t like to travel too far from winter, even in California.
Ah yes, if only we could skip, skim our way back to vigorous youth, eh? Wonderfully done, Davy!
Thank you Delyn. My brain is still that of a 12 year old but my body has unfortunately moved 40 years on 🙂 I appreciate your time in visiting and commenting.
There’s much to be said for retaining a 12-year old’s mind, Davy–innocence, wonder, silliness and charm… 🙂
A bit like Frank then Delyn 🙂
Perfect picture to go with great poem. “…skimming away old bones.” Love that line!
Thank you Gilda. That is appreciated 🙂
Oops, I think I put two lines together. Still love it!
I think it works as well Gilda. Gives the poem a different feel 🙂
Oh haha, thanks for saying. Your way is definitely best!😀
love the nostalgia, Davy!
Thank you Rosema.I am glad you enjoyed it 🙂
