Heart of Stone

d’Verse Poets Pub – Quadrille #45
Mish is throwing rocks in the Pub today

Heart of Stone

what i know about rocks could fill a
rocket
or not
i know they can be thrown
and skipped
dug up
and buried
painted
sometimes they rock when
stepped on
what I’ve learned about rocks
is that they hold great mysteries
in their hearts

  2. I enjoyed the play on the words ‘rocks’ and ‘rocket’ and the way you played around with those stones – there’s lots of movement in your quadrille, Candy, which is interesting when a rock doesn’t actually move much unless we interact with it. Now that’s got me thinking…
