A Night Long Ago

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub - Quadrille #137:
Throwing Poem Stones.  (posted by WhimsyGizmo)

"Today, I want us to make a little Stone (Poem) Soup. 
"Carve us a poem out of the word stone."

Wild weed and Mateus
wine.  Stoned. Blast
The Rolling Stones.  Start out
with Jumpin’ Jack Flash,
take a taste of Brown Sugar,
maybe segue into 
Rollin’ and Tumblin’ Dice.
If your mood becomes
contemplative, roll with
Angie, Ruby Tuesday,
and Send Me Dead Flowers.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    A major Stones fan, I really like this which is a rarity because usually I can’t get no satisfaction.

    Ah Mateus wine. It carries fine memories for me–still one year underage in a Portugese restaurant–ordering without being carded. For me, it was the height of sophistication.

    Rock and roll, and fall like a stone!

    Wild weed, Mateus, and The Rolling Stones are a Trifecta of Hippy Coolness. I love every one of those songs. Back in the day the other two as well 😉
