Speaking rocks…




The  R O C K S …..They are visible ..but invisible…

This  happens   .only when you put your whole energy   into it…

You start looking into the inside of things….then a rock is not ..just a rock

When  I saw this rock,  the first thing that stuck me was they  that they were friends…brothers ?…probably

                                                                                                                                     S O U L M A T E S …

May be it was one rock …which became three… over the years…





You can feel they are Breathing.…& that it is

                                          looking at you…




I touched it and I could feel it was





I touched it  and could feel  its





I touched it …could feel it was






There is a great deal …it does not

                                                              speak …





There is life here …ready to be






The words comes from the very heart of it…

It comes from its very






The moment you start listening to






You will hear what is being said  more importantly






There  are no use of words….but

                                                   Gaps in between…





When you have become fully alert & there is no

                                                            Mind anymore….





‘ Hearing is possible for everybody ; listening is possible

only for those who are silent…”

  19. Beautiful reflection and beautiful picture. I can almost feel them…if close my eyes, I feel the warmth, the softness and the jagged bumps. They are not unlike us. Nothing is. “Everything is everything”…we are connected through this.
    I read your post yesterday and today, I (not-so-coincidentally) happened to stumbled on some pictures I had taken of some volcanic rocks at a beach in Greece. The memory of how they felt in my hands reignited deep thought…
    A poem was born from it today.
    Thank you, for giving the boulder a nudge (pun intended hehe)
