January 9th ~ A polished stone

International Small Stones Writing Month

written for a river of stones ~ go here to join in

church bells ringing out
birds atop the hawthorn tree
await the sermon

Birds are a great inspiration to me.  My paternal grandmother was called Adalina Stork and my maternal grandmother was Isabella Dove.... my mother is Jemima (puddleduck?) - could this be the reason? :O)


  1. What beautiful names...and what beautiful photos!

  2. Oh dear, I'm afraid the photographs were 'pinched' from the internet.... but yes, they are beautiful. The church is Saint Stephens, our local Anglican church.

  3. lol! I won't tell! the words are beautiful too!

  4. p.s. The words are mine. :O)

  5. "birds atop the hawthorn tree
    await the sermon" - I love this idea/image - wonderful. And your family's names are fabulous! How fantastic to have been gifted such creative names.
