Word 3: Rock

Third day in…so far only four challengers. No Labels, Lamont Clark, Mahogany Dymond and myself. My friend Simone has been doing hers over on Google+ …I’m hoping some more will join in soon. ENTYWAYS…lol


the first thing I heard was
Tina Turner singing,
“rock me baby…rock me alllll night long”
the first thing I think of
is rocks on the edge of water,
smooth with the agitation of the water’s edge
i think of the proverbial
“rock of Gibraltar”
the pillar of strength
the basic idea of fortitude
i hear “rock the boat”
i see rock stars
i think rocking chairs
and rocking babies
and rocking domes
and rocking clothes

i realized
while writing this…
that i rock when i write
a gentle sway
as if i’m impatiently waiting
for the words to rock right out of me

(I’m kinda freestyling this challenge so far…bare with me folks, lol)
