Loud, Untethered, Free

Rocky Mountain Way
on the radio, I play
air guitar and sing -
loud, untethered, free.
Got no one bossin' me,
nowhere I gotta be,
but I'll get there -

hey,

hey,

hey.





Inspired to have a little fun by Kerry at Real Toads

News and Notes:  Sherry included one of my poems in a beautiful feature about daughter-inspired poems.  Sherry always does such a great job with these features.  You can read it a Poets United.

If that's not enough poetry for you, I also have some poems up at Five to One Magazine.  Happy Poetry Month!

Thanks Kelli, and wow, I've never read some of your poems in the magazine. What a treat. Indian Summer is my favorite.

Rocky Mountain Way...Joe Walsh version is the baddest. I love the song too.

This is so good, Kell! There's no better feeling than freedom ... fresh air ... music. I think we moms especially feel it in our cars, listening to the radio, driving down the (open) road with the windows down. That's what this makes me crave, anyway.

Great song.

I want to hear YOU sing and play, though. :) Come on; pull out the old recordings.

P.S. Did you wear Rocky Mountain jeans? I sure did.

This song just reminded me of "Smokin' in the Boys' Room." :P

Loved all the poems at the links. How I envy both you and your daughter, being able to sing! But singing along to the car radio is something I can enjoy, and it makes me feel free too.

Oh, this is one of my favorite songs and you rocked a response to it!!

I was surprised to learn not long ago that Stevie Nicks' "Beauty And The Beast" was written for Joe Walsh.

Your poems in Five to One are very good. Congratulations on the publication.

MZ--I followed both links--thanks. Congratulations. Everyone recognizes the same thing--Mama Zen is one fierce poet.
