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. --by Carla Jeanne Picklo Jordan
