NABLOPOMO – # 19 … “FLORETTE TRIPPIN'”

Standard

NABLOPOMO – # 19 … “FLORETTE TRIPPIN'”

For Day # 19 of NaBloPoMo I’ve combined it with today’s “dVerse” poetry prompt We were urged to write a poem using the Florette style. There are several syllable counts for each line, and a rhyming scheme, also. You can find out more about the dVerse Poets here

Today, I was listening to the radio…my favorite rock station, and I thought I’d write something including mentions of the songs and bands that were played in the short amount of time I was driving somewhere. This is what I came up with. For fun, see if you can pick out the ones I used 🙂

FLORETTE TRIPPIN’

A slice of moon…pie in the sky

Dark, sweet, and bright – a lovely lie

Crystalline stars…fire in the night

Shooting meteor streaks of light…I want to fly…

An Ozzy land of crazy trains,

How wild it is feeling no pains…

We’ll escape our own Earthly jail.

Let us blaze an amazing trail, without jet planes…

Shimmer and glimmer, steps of stairs

Shh…the klaxon now loudly blares

Board the Zeppelin…off we go

Through the milky way – we will blow fireworks and flares…

Must not put off our day of play

Across the Universe today

We’ll sail into the purple smoke…

Deep water on the hookah’s toke…let’s not delay…

Give a smooch of venomous bliss;

Alice warns of poisonous kiss…

Watch out for thorns on every rose,

Keep eyes open, please, do not doze or you will miss…

There may be Hale within the storm,

But to ride this life, we are born.

Yes, we’ll weather it without cease.

Sing songs of love – spread joy…with peace, we will adorn…

So, if you are a Freak like me,

Wave your flag in the air to see…

Forget the rain, enjoy the trip

We’ll be far outta sight, and Hip…our Souls are Free…

  1. And.. this is what i love about
    Google.. i’m not a label
    person.. but yes..
    random thoughts
    are my thing..
    so put
    some words
    in about the song..
    and the algorithm
    always spells
    the label
    back..
    friends of
    YouTube and me..
    that algorithm is..:)

  2. Lively imaginative, you rocked the socks off the form, & still had fun with it; must of been a long drive to get so much classic rock n’ roll into it; smiles.

    • Hi, Glenn! Thanks for the visit here and your awesome comment! 🙂 Driving around listening, between Dr. appointments, and other errands for about 3 hours, before noon. That station I get doesn’t mess around much in between songs, so we get to hear a lot of them!

    • Thank you so much, Marinasofia! I do like to combine things when I can. Sometimes I think why do I take the hard way to do things, but in the end, it does challenge me to try different things! Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

    • Hi Kanzensakura! Isn’t that a great time, to drive around with some great tunes on? 🙂 I should do it more often. Thank you for the visit here, and may your weekend be musical! 🙂
