A Small Stone

Invited to join  Mindful Writing Day  I wrote this 'small stone', inspired by the bushes in St Peter's gardens, Wolverhampton (in Lichfield St, between the Art Gallery and Barclays Bank)

Ranks of squat bushes sit in stillness, 
an air of held breath. I send my sympathy, 
imagine roots clenched like children’s toes 
against the chilblain frozen cold to come.
