December Dodoitsu #15

how many snowflakes does a
heart make, to catch my eye this
wintry night, reminding me
that love’s everywhere


It is a known fact to anyone who knows me that if there is a scattering of rocks, I can be found in the middle of them searching for the heart shaped ones. Over the years I have found hundreds of them. And I have also been known to give them away in hopes to brighten someone’s day. These are no ordinary rocks you see. They’ve been battered and chiseled, losing parts of themselves to become that familar shape, a heart, a symbol of love. I found my first one when I needed it most. I’ll never forget how it made me feel. I’ll never forget how I felt when I gave that precious lump of limestone away to someone who needed it more than me. I find them everywhere now. Heart shaped rocks, seashells, leaves, flower petals, and sometimes, clumps of snow. It helps me to remember what matters most. It reminds me I’m never alone. Love is everywhere you know. Peace to you ❤️
