Playlist

Today’s prompt was to take any random song play list and use the next five song titles on that randomized list in a poem.

I…um…well… I had so much fun with this prompt, I couldn’t stop at five. You can check out my classic random shuffle playlist below. Enjoy!

birds of a feather: we

i shall soon 
be lost--
withoutatrace.

my head knows 
i will be ok,
but my heart supposes
that a thousand inches
measured in distance 
feels like a thousand years.

as a long time traveller 
and a long time seeker
in royal pursuit of better things,
i have my eye on it--
this distance between us,

this great 
chasm of space--
even though i can 
find home in your heart,
i am already missing
your sunshine smile 

over coffee, 
the cheery words
of your morning person ways
filling the silence 
with pure joy.

i am certain you will
forget me not--
and even if i feel lost 
withoutatrace,

a look at the stars
and rising moon
(theoneandonly)
will allow me
to hang out 
in your heart
by proxy.

how
sweet
it
is.

About cjpjordan

A poet, a writer, an artist, a thinker, a musician and occasionally a skeptic, when I'm not teaching or traveling, I love to read and write and play the ukelele. I'm loving life with my Little Wonder--his energy and joy for life is contagious. He makes me believe and hope again. I don't want to forget these moments that pass so quickly so I have decided to write them down for posterity and for you to enjoy.
