On My iTouch ~ Fun Friday Poem

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

In which I am so.completely.random.

Kaye Dacus, {a wonderful author and lady in my opinion}, posts fun little tidbits in a weekly post called 'Fun Friday'. This week she had us try to make our own "free-form poem" using our iPods/mp3 players, putting it on shuffle and copying the first line of each song to see what poem emerged after 20 lines.

Since I just uploaded a bunch of completely random stuff to my iTouch, I figured this ought to be pretty interesting...There's a whole lotta Sting, Ginny Owens, Chris Tomlin, Jennifer Knapp with a smidge of Mercy Me and Van Morrison thrown in for good measure.


My iTouch Plays...

You think you're a special case, that the world's got it out for you,
I don't drink coffee, I drink tea my dear.
Sister Moon, be my guide
Well, it's a marvelous night for a moondance.

Sunrise, sunrise ~ looks like morning in your eyes.
Underground and waiting just below the crowded avenue,
A man can't look at a woman too long.
If we seek solace in the prisons of a distant past.

She says her love for me could never die.
How could I ever say thank you?
All I wanna do is give this life to you.
I could travel over oceans, cross the deserts, climb the mountains.

Went out on a limb ~
Waiting for you ~
Leaves a mind left to wander.
See those shoulders bend all weighted by the thought.

There's a place in the darkness that I used to cling to.
Forgive me if I stare.
I tried so hard, my dear, to show that you're my every dream.
The current is strong from what I've heard.

It's not the pale moon that excites me,
Monday mornin', it's time to get up.
We're gonna party, I can feel it down inside.
You're in a better place, I've heard a thousand times.

I used to see the world in black and white
Your love has captured me
Like a flower waiting to bloom.
Open up the skies of mercy.

Kaye Dacus is running a writing series right now on villains/bad guys and always has some great writing tips. In addition, she recently had some new books hit the market too ~ Ransome's Honor and Menu for Romance. I haven't had a chance to read the second one yet, but LOVED Ransome's Honor. If you haven't visited Kaye's site, be sure to pop over and say hi!

  2. This was my favorite "stanza":

    Went out on a limb ~
    Waiting for you ~
    Leaves a mind left to wander.
    See those shoulders bend all weighted by the thought.


    That read like something a poet would actually put together on her own!

  3. How amazing this was to try and do. Once my Ipod charges I will attempt to do this too. Thanks for Kaye for the idea and sharing yours with all of us.

  4. Wow, yours turned out nice! I have a hard time identifying songs by their first lines especially without the music, but I'm sure I know some of these especially since I listen to Sting and Van Morrison occasionally.

    Nice blog too!
