Skipping Stones

Skipping stones

Smooth and round

the disc fits in my palm,

the perfect spot

to rub my thumb over.

It soothes

my tactile self.

Worry stones,

some call them.

But they are suited

to another task,

one of skill

and determination,

focus, and environment.

For waters must be still,

and so must I

for the stone to skip.

As I ready to launch,

I worry the stone

before bouncing it

along the water,

watching my cares

disappear from view.
