Three River Suiseki Storypath


Placing the Stones.
Placing light next to light.
Finding that moment
that had to be waited for
these millions of years,
wearing down, wearing away,
then waiting for me.
Hundreds of miles
of famous California rivers.

I get to three of them—
Smith, Klamath, Trinity,
and one found creek—Dry Scrabble
off the Smith—
I get a small patch of each
by hard, slow driving, and guess work,
then maybe get an hour on each
on different days.
