Flip it! Flip it good!

It's International Rock-Flipping Day!

Click above to learn more (and go flip a rock NOW) -- or click here to read the update.

If you decide to share your own rock-flipping exploits, Dave Bonta has graciously offered to be Rock-Flipping Central.

Dave wrote, "I’m willing to act as coordinator and send out a list of links that evening or the next morning, with all the HTML tags in place for people to copy and paste. Send your links to me as soon as you post: bontasaurus (at) yahoo (dot) com, with 'Rock Flipping' in the subject line."


Rock-Flipping Day Tercets

A: Right-Side Up
I turn myself over in my mind,
reveal the delicate thready roots
that lace the surface of deeper ground.

B: Upside-Down
A new way to play rock-paper-scissors:
rock sings the muse, paper scrawls poems,
scissors edits then rusts under rock.

C: Right-Side Up Again
Calciferous blanket pulled up tight
to the chins of chitinous millipedes tucked in
the cool dark, dreaming of leaf-mould and puffballs.

I liked these! Especially C.

I like these, too. Having small photographs works well and stimulates the imagination of what might lie around the rock.

These are perfect. We both may live in Austin, Lori, but your eyes were able to see deeply when you flipped your rocks.

Love the pics but especially love the words. You have such a command of those words. They do exactly what you want. I salute you!
