The skimmed stones

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.

In reply to David Agnew’s poem about skimming stones. – Skimming stones There is a beautiful artwork going with it! πŸ™‚
