A Stone Bird


I bought this very small concrete bird from a garden shop and put it by the flower pots on my balcony for a while.  Now it sits inside on my painting table.

On the subject of stone, here’s an excerpt from a poem I like – “Stone” by Charles Simic:

From the outside, the stone is a riddle/ no one knows how to answer it/Yet within, it must be cool and quiet…/I have seen sparks fly out/When two stones are rubbed/So perhaps it is not dark inside after all…/Just enough light to make out/The strange writings, the star charts/On the inner walls.
