Life's Crossings

Babbles, voyages and others interesting things



The Gift of Composition

The Daily Post’s April 13th prompt:

Can’t get it out of my head.

Have you ever become obsessed with something? Tell us about something that captivates your attention like nothing else.

Good music, can,
Captivate me and, deeply make,
Me feel things.

Reflect my mood,
With its charming and sometimes,
Hauntingly beautiful characteristics.

Rich like chocolate,
Smooth as silk, warm like,
The sizzling sun.

Instrumental or verbal,
Paired with a passionate voice,
Can grab me.

It could be,
Michael to John, to invade,
And lull my mind.

It’s therapy, it’s,
Expression, it’s healing, but most
Of all cleansing.

Summer Love

In the spirit of my playlist poem, i decided to do another one for April 10.

Oh Misery,

You’ve been an unwanted friend lately.

It all changed Under the Bridge that day,

You told me Fall was coming and then you went away.

“Say It Ain’t So,” honey,

Stay a while longer and keep it sunny.

You took with you the jovial warm glow,

Long days and the short nights where the wind would softly blow.

I need The Remedy or a cure,

Of this I’m very sure.

Fall passes, then Winter,

Spring comes and I began to hope.

May’s here and with it came a post, saying,

“Summer’s coming and I’ll be back,

From Seattle with our love in tack.

Meet me at the boardwalk Under the Bridge,

Where You and I Both fell in love.”

I reread the lines,

More than a few times.

Excitement bubbles up and anticipation starts to build,

And the temperature raises at nature’s will.Red rose

June comes and I’m filled with bliss,

Because all I can think about is your kiss.

I see you under the boardwalk

I want to run to you but I walk.

Your gaze upon my face fills me with a blush,

Then you reach out for my hand and it’s such a rush.

Holding hands down the beach,

We vow never let each other out of our reach.

Exploring With My Baby

NaPoWriMo’s prompt for April 9th:

Take any random song play list (from your iPod, CD Player, favorite radio station, Pandora or Spotify, etc.) and use the next five songs titles on that randomized list in a poem.












I love This,
The sun on my face,
Warming my skin,
Even better when it’s shared with you.

How the sun sparkles in your eyes,
Making them shine so bright,
If I Lose Myself in you tonight, darling,
I may never return.

Explore with me, honey,
We’ll start in Boston,
Catch a jazz show at the Scullers Club,
Swing to New York and spend Midnight in Harlem,
Where I’ll hold you Sweet and Low.

We won’t stop there,
Hopefully we won’t stop ever,
The love I have for you runs deep,
And I’ll seal it with an eternal kiss.
