Shake Me, Rock Me




An instant only stood
Between offended gloom and jolly joy
The gesture offered in good faith,
A simple sorry, did unleash
An avalanche of mocking mirth

An instant only
Then into merry sparks it morphed
A waterfall of belly laughter
She could not stop
It shook her, rocked her out of gloom

A thousand church bells
In her rocking, bouncing chest
Echoed songs of happy times
In both their hearts
As they laughed and laughed and laughed

  1. Shake Me, Rock Me! I did so love reading this…reminded me of my own feelings of joy when married. You are the spitting image of Eva Gardner the movie star…I think even lovelier! Beautiful poetry comes from the heart of a beautiful, laughing girl! Bravo!
