Sitting here – small stone 7

Listening to the clatter of tools
the heating engineer working on the leaking boiler,
Hearing cheerful bird song
filtering from bare branches in the garden,
Noticing the creaks of the log burner
radiating heat which warms my feet,
Tuning into conversations of crackling orange flames
their bright tongues chattering and flickering in curling patterns.

sitting here.


Wood burning stoves have featured twice in my small stones this week. This is the time of year I appreciate their warmth especially when the central heating boiler has broken down!

  1. Love the transition from the broken boiler to chatting with the fire.
