This poem was written by my son, Adam, and I asked if I could print it here on my site. Saying I could was a huge step for him.

Pebble on the sidewalk
How did you come to be here?
Were you once part of
A great mountain?

Though rough human hands
Have tossed you.
Though careless human feet
Have kicked you for fun,
The majesty and dignity of your
Great Mountain Father
Remain with you.

Orphan pebble on the sidewalk
You have my
Deepest respect.

Adam David Walsvik

he is a definite poet. Definitly incredibly talented very very much so. Tell him he should keep doing it and explore his soul. Let him read write and be the most crazy wild social cat in all of the world. That reads like it was written by at least an 18 year old if not older it has the freshness of youth and the wisdom of youth

Through the mouths of babes! :) I, also, have had the thrill and joy of postng a couple of pieces from each of my daughters at my site of origin!! The beaming smiles and glowing eyes of each enriched my spirit and the love I felt for those who replied so sweetly!

I look at titles when I decide what to read from the author's here, Orphan Pebble grabbed my eyes, Adam is very astute with his title and his sense in the piece, give him a hug for me!!
