pebble |ˈpebəl|
a small stone made smooth and round by the action of water or sand.

I picked up a single pebble and kept it in my pocket. I wandered across continents, I slept in dark alleys, I laughed and cried a lifetime with its smooth, reassuring surface only a thought away. One day I reached for the pebble and found my pocket empty. I stumbled home in darkness, I wept an ocean, I trembled in wretched solitude. Drowning I reached out in desperation and woke up on a pebbled beach.
