What happens to stones that are skipped
after they have touched the surface
of the water for a second
moving on to the next spot,
then the next till they drown? Do they drown?
As I walked by the tide line this morning
I found a stone that was washed back ashore.
I remembered throwing it a year ago.
Some stones will rest for ever in the mud of the mind,
while other memories won’t take no for an answer.
