Red Stones

red stones

written by: Kay Gardner



i was eating red stones
glittering flashing gems
but you bade me
close my eyes
and when i opened them
you’d pulled my heart
from the pile and pinned
it to my collar
and i knew then
the first faint flutterings
of love

Kay Gardner is a poet first, but she is trying her hand at a novella. She has an ongoing poetry series entitled "windows," and is working on an illustrated poetry collection and a fictionalized memoir. She's in love with words, her cats, and adores a really good cup of coffee. She's also a bit of a grammar nazi, which serves her well in proofreading others' works.
