River of Stones Day 22

River of Stones Day 22

In Memory of WJH - Your Twenty-Two

Did you know I gave your gun away?
Did you know I wanted it myself?
Would that have surprised you?
I bet not; you know how much
I like to shoot, not kill, just shoot
It didn’t surprise me to learn you didn’t
Like to hunt after all ... just had a gun
It seems ...


  1. I think, taken all together, these are probably the most poignant and moving collection of small stones in the whole project.

  2. Thank you so much Bob - what a lovely thing to say; writing these stones has been an act of restorative healing for me and your appreciation of them means the world.


Share your thoughts? I'd love to hear them. Truly.
