On Reading

Altered Words – The Stone


From The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King

She waited in the cold,
muttered, “You’ll die out here…
your rotting body…
your bones”.
Wait…..and think…..
“Just a stone,
The stone,” she whispered,
“The remains”.

      Only virtually, Cate (i.e. in Photoshop). I could never scribble in my books (textbooks are ok though – hehe). I’m going to make it a weekly blog post, so feel free to share yours too!
