Progressive Rolling

Rating: 4.4
I saw some rocks
Skipping down hill
They jumped so joyfully
It gave me a thrill

Dislodged by falling rain
They seemed so proud to be free
They seemed to have been aware
Of their brand new destiny

Like rolling rocks
Be on the move
Every turn and tumble
Your position to improve

Even when removed
From a peak real high
Keep on progressing
And never say die





This poem was motivated by an actual experience of seeing rocks rolling down a hill while driving through a rain storm.

The childlike inquisitiveness and joy of the moment are infectious in this poem. I live in a place where I've been fortunate to see many rocks that were proud to be free... and have helped free a few, just for the fun of watching. The personification just pulls you right into the experience of being there.

The penultimate stanza and the final stanza are so moving. The way you pen your poems are so clear that even an ordinary layman could understand the meaning and wisdom of this write.

One of the most inspring poems I have ever read aside from your best poem, I Choose The Mountain and Something Big. What a brilliant write. You were able to conceive a poem on rolling rocks. Only a great poet can formulate such idea and weave them into a marvelous poem.

The third stanza invokes human beings to embrace every turn and tumble of life! The conclusive stanza provides a strong message to us that even after being removed from a top position, we should not lose heart rather we should enjoy life like a piece of rolling rock and Keep on progressing without losing heart, with a ‘never say die’ attitude! What a beautiful poem! Well penned my friend!

.....‘I saw some rocks skipping down hill’. The poet is absolutely thrilled with the rolling rocks! What a keen sense of observation! In the second stanza, I find a sense of joy of the rocks that are having a sublime bath and cherishing their freedom! (cont..)
