Rock

Rock

Fossils and some other things
Rest inside this rock.
The past to my own present brings
Suggestive hints to shock.

I am used to seeing such
Along this Green Bay shore.
What was before stands out to touch
My mind through this rock’s door.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. “…and some other things / Rest inside this rock.
    The past to my own present brings / Suggestive hints….”

    Fossil hunting among your words reveals an psycho-emotional archaeology of the poetic voice. Other things rest inside this rock. The external never covers it all. We are given only suggestive hints. …and that’s enough!

    Hope you don’t mind my dig of your poem, Frank. It’s a wonderful, potentially fruitful field.

    1. I don’t mind the digging. I think you picked up on the message although I am not sure I understood the message myself when writing the first draft. There is more than the external, but the hints we do have are enough. Thanks, Charley!

  3. ‘Fossils and some other things’ – love them!
    ‘What was before stands out to touch
    My mind through this rock’s door’ – I love the idea of the past reaching out through rocks and fossils, Frank!

      1. Off the A11, the main road from Norfolk towards London, there’s a place called Grimes Caves, which I really must investigate. It’s a Neolithic flint mine so I would expect ‘Fossils and some other things’. Your poem had promoted me to plan ahead for a spring visit, Frank!
