discovering song

Will I discover song under this
    rock? Only the
    moss will tell – Will I

know the meaning of root this
    morning? Only
    the rock-song will tell –

Found the songs first
in little pieces
under a stone. Took all my strength
to gently roll the stone
and prod them out

but behind the yellow piss-pine
crouched the trickster, waiting
to put a mountain there.

– Wendy Rose

As I was interspersing writing poems while reading Wendy Rose’s, I wrote this one and the next poem I read of hers was the one above: serendipitous bit of poetic intermingling.
