Grit and Bold-her

Boulders tumble crash
Crumble into substrata
Sends daisies rooting for joy

Seger me like a rock
Stone some Brown Sugar baby
Shake, swing, rockin' on-no rocker
For me ever

Offered for the rock-in prompt offered by Peggy at poetryjaam.blogspot.com. There were so many ways I wanted to go with this! and then Sam at dVersePoets.com solved the problem with a sedoka. As usual I stretched the rules a little:-)  In case you don't know Bob Seger here's a link:

  1. Sedoka reminds me of Sedaka which reminds me of ROCK n roll. :)

  9. Sorry, I don't get the reference to Seeger or what your poem means :( But I was here and I read it ... a few times ... trying to understand. For me, a poem resonates when it has a universal message :)
