Heart of Stone, by Britta Benson

Photo by Anna Urlapova on

Here’s my response to The Procrastinators’ Sunday Writing Prompts. Theme this week: ‘Affairs of the heart’. Prompt 1: Heart of Stone. Here’s a link to the post:

I liked the concept of a heart of stone. Tempting. Mine is mush. Soft mush, with more flaws than I would like, but hey ho, it’s my drum, my rhythm, the one one I’ve got and I look after it as best I can.

Heart of stone


Complex memento of past eruptions,

stories of fire,

the force of creation.

Fine grained pumice,

containing clasts of unashamed otherness,

crystals and voids,

secrets, forever safe

in my rock solid core.
