Stones of ignorance,
Stones of stupidity thrown.
Stones of knowledge quell.

Stones of jealousy.
Stones of self-centered fame whores.
Humble stones conquer.

Spring evening in Saint-Martin-de-Ré, France

Stones of gossipers.
Stones of mean, dirty conscience.
Honest hearts break fraud.

Stones of evil minds.
Stones thrown to good, honest folks.
Righteousness wins all.

Stones of calumny,
Stones from evil, angry hearts.
Stones of truth beat you.

~ Angelica Hopes, haiku
