Stone Skipping

Stone Skipping--Cinquain poem
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2016


Apparently, Stone Skipping is quite a popular pasttime as there are tournaments and events for it, even a blog post titled:
” 13 Tips to Becoming a Better Stone Skipper”
Who knew?!!  Not me!
I used to enjoy it as a child when I lived close to a river, but had since forgotten about it until now.

However,  it looks like a great leisure time activity for anyone interested, especially if you live close to a river or lake!

It’s National Opposites Day!

Shall I say goodbye when I mean hello?
And should I stay when I really want to go?
On this day of opposites,
Does anyone know what really fits?
If I say what I mean,
Will I mean what I say?
Oh Lord help me make it through this crazy day!
Perhaps it would be better to stay in bed,
And just skip this day instead,
But if sunrise is sunset, it’s over before it begins,
So I shall just play along ’til it ends!

Silly Rhyme
