Summer Rocks

Summer Rocks

A Poem by PatrickPink

There's nothing quite like buggering off in to the wilderness with a collection of like minded reprobates

Two by
         Two by
                  Two by
       Meandering summer
       Donning vibrant flower jackets
   Crowded medley of gorse
Fine hydrangea patchwork
         To weave between

Rocks stark
A thousand paths are carved

      In weatherbeaten faces
Creeping finger
         Tips curled
                Ascent or
Traverse or
            Descend or

Horizontal on turf
       In amongst the ferns
Music smoke and sun
           Shine to each other
Laugh with each other

             Enjoy it
                            While it lasts

Author's Note

Going back to my poetic roots, no punctuation and some different use of space. I've missed writing like this!

Sparkling, tumbling ideas seem to embody the way it can feel when exploring nature & soaking in the delights of summer, step by step, every nook & cranny. I love how your title could be taken two ways: "rocks" as in hard things or "rocks" as in being totally awesome. Around here, this describes spring becuz summers are too hot for playful exploration. Either way, great mood of playful exploration (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Well I enjoy your style anyway. When you can use words form is secondary. And here you once more provide the impressionists view of your ramble and it simply flows with detail that captivates.
