Rock Me


Rock me outta here
Rock me from crazy to sane

Put me in a summer night
watching fireflies play tag
while moonbeams wash the willow's hair

Rock me outta here
Rock me from kettle drums to kettle on the stove

Put me in the mountains
where summer nights are sweater nights
where the wind chime's notes knit a sweater for my soul

Rock me outta reality
Rock me from crazy to sane
Rock me home

"Real" Friends


Virtual Christine's Zombies in Monte Gordo
 
It's easy to get cornered by this over-booked life
It's easy to let reality get too real
Easy to do nothing but To-Dos
To be too busy to be a friend

Shawn K Maloney in Monte Gordo


Lucky for me friends don't let me stay real long
 Dropping by my place with a gift of  pet Zombies
Turns into Star Wars drag racing
Turns into Harleys cross country
and a dare to jump the lake.
The Lake?
Yes we did.

Siobhan Muir in Greyville


Some days smiles are hard to come by
Until a friend drops by
No I've never "really" met most of them
Most I never will
The bonds
The shared time
Experiences, laughter, tears, stories, poems...
Getting to know each other from the inside out
Make these cyber friends, "real" friends to me.

We're remembering fellow poet Dave King and celebrating friendship at dVerse poets tonight. This is my contribution to that discussion and to the weekly gathering of friends at G-Man's Friday 55. Drop by to see what others wrote or to contribute something yourself.
